David Weir comments on Reece Wabara and Andy Halliday, confirms transfer decision will be made after Tottenham friendly

Rangers Gates

Rangers are playing Tottenham in a friendly this week.

Rangers are taking on Spurs in a behind closed-doors friendly this week, and David Weir has confirmed to the Daily Mail that decisions on the signings of Reece Wabara and Andy Halliday will be made after the game.

The assistant coach said: “Ideally we want to see these guys in a match situation. Hopefully we can have a look at them this week and we'll take things from there. We need to get players in who can help the club. There has to come a point when a decision is made but, from our point of view, that ideally happens after a game.”

Wabara and Halliday have been with the Ibrox club for the last week, spending time trying to impress Mark Warburton and Weir. The duo are on trial, and are looking to become the latest additions in the summer rebuild of the Gers.

Danny Wilson, Rob Kiernan and Wes Foderingham have all signed to the club already this summer, but Warburton does not want to push through a deal for either of the trialists until able to see them in match action.

They face Spurs this week, and the game will give Wabara and Halliday a chance to finally turn out for the club, as they look to earn permanent deals. Having been training already with the club, they will be well set to fit in with Warburton’s system, and they are likely to play much of the game against the Lilywhites.

The management duo will then assess their trial pair, and if suitably impressed, it should not be long before they are tied down to full-time contracts at Ibrox.
