  • Newest Timber Kris Boyd will be introduced at a press conference on Tuesday, but he has to grab his luggage first.

Newest Timber Kris Boyd has arrived in Portland, the above photograph confirms.

The Timbers announced today during training that Boyd (Portland's newest Designated Player and the Scottish Premiere League's all-time leading scorer) will be formally introduced to Soccer City USA on Tuesday morning, but Timbers Army certainly takes comfort in seeing Boyd's oft-brilliant boots resting upon the green carpet of PDX's baggage claim area.

One man with experience in flights from Scotland to The States is, of course, Portland coach John Spencer. He said Boyd will be tired tomorrow, but that likely won't keep his fellow Scot from wanting to be with his new teammates—even if Boyd's heart is with his old ones.

"He's been away from the group long enough," Spencer said, "so I imagine, he's looking forward to playing, and smashing the ball in the back of the net."

So what kind of welcome should Boyd expect when he meets his new 'mates? Click past the jump for video of Mike Chabala cracking wise about the buzz in the locker room.
