Matt Phillips' biggest problems are his inconsistency, and the fact that he's never really set the heather alight playing for Scotland.
I've seen him have some very good games for his club and some truly awful games for his country.
Boyle has added a real consistency to his game and has adapted well to life back in the Premier League. I think he'd rise to the challenge and he has pace that will cause problems at almost any level.
He might be able to recapture that raw impact that Ivan Sproule had, where nobody really seemed to know what he was going to do, not least himself.
Many players are utterly predictable.
