Smith grateful as Boyd grabs point for Rangers
The striker marked his first start since recovering from a hernia operation with his 20th goal of the season to earn a share of the points in the 1-1 draw at Fir Park.
Tom Hateley – son of former Ibrox hero Mark – claimed the opener for the hosts before Ross Forbes wrongly had a goal disallowed for offside.
But it was Boyd who had the final say as he rescued a point for an under-par Rangers side.
"It's always nice to see him get a goal and he is always in there," said Smith.
"If we had applied the level of pressure in the first half as we did in the second half, then we would have had more opportunities. We didn't and that was a disappointing factor."
Rangers now sit eight points clear at the summit of the SPL.
He said: "I'm pleased that we confirmed our recent good form is not just a flash in the pan. I think we're a good side and capable of taking on anyone."
