Ross County have rejected a bid from Burton Albion for their striker Liam Boyce according to the Inverness Courier.

Boyce, who finished a successful campaIgn with an impressive 23 goals this season in the SPL has attracted interest from a plethora of clubs and it is believed that Burton are one of many interested in the Northern Irish Striker.

This season with Celtic dominating the headlines in the SPL, Boyce has managed to score more than both Scott Sinclair and Moussa Dembele, clearly demonstrating his goalscoring talents in and around the box. Burton are looking to strengthen this season to ensure survival once again and if they are to achieve this, it’s imperative that they have a proven and reliable goalscorer in their side. Jackson Irvine finished top scorer for the Brewers last season with ten goals and if they are to survive comfortably this year, they will need a far greater tally from their top marksman.

Ross County themselves narrowly missed out on the top six in the SPL last season, and it is no secret that Boyce was a key component, of what has been a fantastic season for the Staggies. County’s manager Jim McIntyre when questioned about Boyce’s future said “Basically, we’ve had a bid for Liam and we’ve said no to it. That’s where it stands at the minute”.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Liam Boyce and if it is with Ross County or in the Championship, however Burton have clearly targeted their man for next season and whether they are prepared to continue bidding for the striker remains a mystery.
