Burton Albion striker Liam Boyce has revealed he is open to a return to the Scottish Premiership in the future.

The Northern Ireland international who joined Albion from Ross County back in 2017 will be happy to return the League where he made his name after struggling for fitness in England with Burton Albion.

Boyce, who arrived in Scotland from Irish League side Cliftonville, netted an impressive 23 times in the league during the 2016-17 campaign. Those goals kept County in the top flight and earned the Belfast man a £500,000 move to Burton.

Quizzed on a possible return to Scotland, Boyce said, as quoted by Daily Record:

“I would love to go back some time and see if I could do it all over again because I finished top scorer in my last season at Ross County.”

“Playing in Scottish football changed my life.”

“I really enjoyed my time with County and we had some good moments.

“Now I just want to see how high I can go.”

“Last season I was in the Championship with Burton but I had to miss half of it due to injury.”

“I’d love to get back there and see if we can keep pushing and get into the English Premier League. Everyone can dream.”

“And down the line returning to play in the Scottish Premiership is something I would look at.”
