David Weir reveals what Mark Warburton will bring to Rangers

Rangers fans will be looking forward to seeing how their new management team embark on a promotion push next season.

After his and Mark Waburton's appointment as Rangers new management team, assistant boss David Weir spoke to BBC Sport and the rest of the media about the qualities of the man now in charge of the Scottish giants.

Weir and Warburton were a very successful team at former club Brentford, with the former Rangers and Everton defender learning his trade as an assistant manager after a short and ill-fated spell in charge of Sheffield United.

It has ended up with Weir returning to Ibrox three years after leaving as a player, and the Scot was happy to discuss the qualities which the new Rangers manager will bring to the club.

"Mark is very clever in what he does and he has belief that he is going to be successful," the 45-year-old is quoted as saying by BBC Sport. "Our job is to get the club back to where it needs to be and wants to be.

Weir also revealed that Warburton is more than just a football manager, emphasising that he has experience within business as well - something that could excite Rangers fans in relation to transfers or worry them regarding sales.

"Mark has a business background," the former Scottish international added. "He communicates well with people and he is also a very good coach."

This broader expertise aside from just being an excellent manager was also mentioned by executive Paul Murray, who praised Warburton's "wider view of a football structure."

But what matters most to Gers fans is the fact that Warburton wasn't far away from taking Brentford from League One play off hopefuls into the Premier League. He has just one aim at Rangers, getting that final promotion that will take them back to the Premiership.
