DAVID WEIR has been delighted with the way that the Gers squad have worked hard from the first day of preseason in his debut season as Rangers assistant manager.

The Light Blues have won the SPFL Championship, the Petrofac Cup and dumped Celtic out of the Scottish Cup in a dramatic semi final at Hampden that culminated in a penalty shootout win for Mark Warburton’s side.

Weir joined the club with Warburton in the summer and he has been impressed with the way that a largely new Gers squad have adopted the playing philosophy and adapted to the demands placed upon them at a club the size of Rangers.

The Rangers Hall of Fame player and current assistant boss said recently: “The players have worked exceptionally hard this season, the goal has been clear in regards to what is expected of them and what is perceived as being successful.

“They’ve achieved that and they’ve achieved it with time to spare, so they deserve the accolades that are coming their way.

“It’s never easy to win a league, any league, so they have done that and deserve everything that goes with it.”

“They have worked hard from day one in terms of how they have trained, how they have conducted themselves and doing what Mark and I have asked them to do.

“So we’re really happy with the response we have had from them and all we wanted was for them to get the rewards they deserve.”

Weir was interviewed for the A4 special final programme of the league season and this is just a short section of what the Gers assistant had to say. You can read the full interview within the programme which is available to purchase online HERE.
