“They can see players who can perform at a really high level but they’re not doing it in every game at this moment in time.”
Boyd meanwhile believes Rangers are a different outfit entirely to the team who topped the table midway through the 2019-20 campaign only to stutter after the winter break.
Their drop off allowed Celtic to open up a huge points lead that saw them handed the title after the coronavirus pandemic shut down the league in March.
“Their performances this season, especially after coming back from Europe, have improved,” Boyd added of Rangers.
“It’s been a totally different team, as Steven Gerrard has so much confidence in his players.
“He can look around at the bench and he’s got international players and everyone seems to be playing with a smile on their face.
