Boyce took to Twitter to describe how there was no trouble from the majority of fans at the Dankse Bank Premiership game between Linfield and Glentoran but added: "There's always one to ruin it".
He said a male supporter threatened to attack him on his way out of the game and had to use police protection as a precaution on his exit.
Boyce claims a man shouted: "Boyce, Devlin (I'll) cut your throats on way out".
He said an adult man along with three friends and a child were involved in hurling abuse.
The footballer told his followers that it was a Linfield player who gave him the tickets for the game on Saturday afternoon and that he had enjoyed the company of the rest of the supporters there.
"I expect banter not sectarianism and death threats," Boyce said.
Reds goalkeeper Devlin, who was watching the game with Boyce, added on Twitter: "Death threats, Coins ...and police escort aside, I really enjoyed Blues v Glens with (Liam Boyce) today!!"
