Kris Boyd (born 18 August 1983) is a Scottish professional footballer who currently plays as a striker for Turkish side Eskişehirspor.

Boyd grew up in the Ayrshire village of Tarbolton and started his senior career with Kilmarnock. He transferred to Rangers in January 2006, and was Rangers' top goalscorer in each of his seasons at Ibrox. He is presently the highest goalscorer in the history of the Scottish Premier League, with 164 goals in total.

Boyd had a short unsuccessful spell in English football with Middlesbrough, during which time he was sent on loan to Nottingham Forest. He signed for Turkish club Eskişehirspor in 2011.
