DAVID WEIR has welcomed the competition for places in the Rangers squad ahead of tonight’s game with Inverness Caley Thistle.
The Gers travelled to the Highlands with a full complement of players ahead of the Premiership clash, and Weir reckons the bolstered numbers bring the best out of all the players.
Speaking exclusively to the Official Rangers Podcast, Weir explained: “We know it will be a tough game going up there – it always is. They’ve shown already this season they are difficult to beat, but fortunately we are going into the game coming off the back of a win and a break. Confidence is high and we go into the game looking to build on the momentum we have created.
“We welcome back players too – Josh Windass has been back training for a bit now, while Jordan Rossiter and Matt Crooks are back training too, and it’s always great to have players back on the scene that have been missing for large parts of the season. The majority of the boys are fit now and it’s great to have that competition.
“We have many different attributes and options. Everybody will be wanting to play and some will be disappointed, but I think that competition brings an edge to our play.”
Rangers have struggled over the years at the Caledonian Stadium, and Weir expects a tough game with the Highlanders as ever.
He added: “They are an experienced team who have been together for a while, and obviously Richie Foran has come in and got his ideas across. You can see that they play in a style that suits themselves and suits him. They are hardworking, well organised and have some talent and quality if they are given the time to do that. It will be a hard game – it always is up there but it is a challenge we are looking forward to.”
