Weir comments on current condition of Rangers squad

Rangers coach David Weir has provided an update on the physical condition of the club's squad.

Rangers assistant boss David Weir told the club’s official website that he and manager Mark Warburton are happy with the current condition of the first team squad.

Weir has confirmed that the key players at the club are fit and available, as he comments on the progress which has been made in terms of the short time that he and Warburton have had, in terms of working with the squad.

Weir has also explained why he’s refusing to get carried away at the start of the season, where it’s traditionally difficult to cast accurate judgements because the campaign has only just started.

“In regards to fitness-wise we are happy. Most of the players are fit and available, and we’ve been happy with how they’ve bought into what we’re trying to do,” he told

“We’re still quite early in that regard having only been working with them for six weeks together as a group, but there are a lot of new players we have integrated well and helped to get to know the group and the club.”

“We’ve done well so far, but it is still early-doors with regards to where we want to be and putting things down that will hopefully be permanent.”

Some encouraging signs for the management

The most encouraging thing for Weir and Warburton will be that there don’t appear to be any signs of players struggling to adapt to their style.

The transition of them coming in, making changes and letting the squad know what they expect, seems to have been very simple and easy.

That should give the side a better chance of being consistent through the opening weeks of the season, hopefully getting Rangers into a position which they can improve and defend in the face of challenges from their main rivals.
