DAVID WEIR was thrilled to get one final chance to play at Ibrox last week when he lined up for the Rangers Legends team against AC Milan Glorie.

The former club skipper made an emotional departure from the Light Blues in January when he received a rapturous reception from fans at half-time in the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen.

Weir has since rejoined old side Everton as a coach and reserve player and is relishing being back at Goodison Park.

But by equal measure, he was delighted to get an opportunity to play at the home of the side he captained to three SPL triumphs as skipper again six days ago.

Prior to the fundraising game, Weir’s last appearance at Ibrox had been in July against Malmo and he thought his final outing in Govan had been and gone.

The 41-year-old speaks about his brief return to Gers on an Ibrox Edition special tonight on RangersTV.tv which looks back at that match with the Rossoneri.

Weir said: “It was excellent (to be back). I really enjoyed it and the crowd turned out in their numbers to create a great atmosphere.

“It was a great game which I enjoyed from start to finish. You’ve got to savour these things because when you do leave, you never know if you’ll get a chance to play at Ibrox again.

“It was a great experience to return and play alongside and against some of the people I’ve faced in the past.

“I’m sure everyone else would say the same thing as well. It was really good to be back and to get a win made it even better.”
