Rangers striker Kris Boyd believes a positive partnership with Kenny Miller is the secret to his recent goalscoring streak.
Ibrox manager Walter Smith is among those to have noticed an increased work-rate in the forward, but Boyd has put a lot of his prolific form down to Miller.
The former Kilmarnock striker has scored 12 goals in 10 games since withdrawing his services from Scotland manager George Burley.
Boyd, who netted a hat-trick in Saturday's 7-1 victory over Hamilton, said: "I definitely feel a lot sharper than I did last season.
"In terms of playing football, I'm really enjoying it again. I do feel good at the moment. I think it's down to a run in the team and back scoring goals.
"I think Kenny Miller plays a big part in it as well, because we have struck up a good partnership so far.
"We both know we have got a long way to go but we have certainly got the foundations of a good partnership."
Boyd claims to have no regrets over his decision to quit international football but gave further indication he hopes to play for Scotland if and when Burley departs.
"I have made my decision and I stick by it," he said.
"I feel as if I've got a new lease of life at club level and I'll continue to do that until I feel as if the time is right, if I'm selected."
