Boydy was within the stands at Rugby Park to cowl the Viaplay Cup quarter-final between Kilmarnock and Hearts for Sky’s Soccer Particular programme.
Hosted by Julian Warren, it was simply the same old programme because the presenter threw from recreation to recreation for normal rating updates from pundits up and down the nation on a busy evening of cup soccer in England and Scotland.

The previous striker then went on to speak in regards to the Rugby Park catering, and revealed he was having fun with a well-known staple on the stadium.
He produced a PIE from off the display, exclaiming: “The hospitality at Kilmarnock is unbelievable as soon as once more. Kilmarnock pie, you may’t beat them. It is nonetheless 1-0 Hearts!”

However Boyd – having none of it – fires again: “Can I end my pie? it’s 1-0 nonetheless. That went previous the submit. 1-0 Hearts. Confirmed – I am on the recreation bear in mind!”
Lastly managing to clear issues up, host Warren added: “You are too busy consuming your pie so I do not belief you. The vidiprinter is inaccurate, our apologies for that!”
Because it turned out, the automated match knowledge had wrongly thought Magennis’ effort had gone in.
However as Boyd appropriately identified, it had whistled simply large of the submit.
And the rating very a lot did – at that time – stay 1-0 to Hearts.
Fortunately for Boyd – who was fully in the fitting all alongside – it meant that he DIDN’T create Chris Kamara’s 2010 howler in any case.
