Quote of the day

"It was a get-rich-quick thing, but didn’t interest me. I have two young kids and the missus to think about. It’s more important that you’re a father to them. Coming here, we’ll still be together."

Former Rangers striker and long-time Toon target Kris Boyd explains that his decision to turn down a £50,000-a-week move to Turkish outfit Kayserispor was motivated by concern for his family. So why exactly has he chosen to join the Smogs then?

Meanwhile, someone else who's been offered "a get-rich-quick thing" and instead jumped at the chance is old boy Roy Aitken, who's decided to swap a coaching role at Birmingham for one at Al Ahli in Dubai. Can't see how you can blame him - sunshine, a fat pay packet and seeing a World-Cup-winning captain in Fabio Cannavaro in training every day (even a Fabio Cannavaro in the very twilight of his career) probably outweighs having to work with David O'Blarney...
