David Weir picks his favourite Rangers game - it was against Celtic

Celtic V Rangers Reserves

Rangers defeated Celtic in the 2011 Scottish League Cup final.

Rangers assistant manager David Weir has told the club’s official website that his favourite game for the Gers was against Celtic in the 2011 Scottish League Cup final.

Weir played for Rangers for five years between 2007 and 2012, scoring five goals in 231 competitive appearances in the process.

During his time at Ibrox, the 45-year-old former defender won the Scottish league title thrice, the Scottish Cup twice and the Scottish League Cup on three occasions.

The former Scotland international has picked the 2-1 victory over Celtic in the 2011 Scottish League Cup final at Hampden Park in Glasgow as his favourite game for Rangers.

Weir was the captain of the Gers for the match and played for the entire 90 minutes.

“The UEFA Cup semi-final second leg against Fiorentina was really good, as was the day we won the league at Dundee United and when we won it at Kilmarnock after being 3-0 up after only seven minutes,” the Scot told Rangers’ official website.

“But the League Cup Final when we beat Celtic would be my number one. It was the biggest of occasions and the best experience.”

Rangers are playing in the Scottish Championship at the moment, but they are on course to gaining promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Mark Warburton’s side are nine points clear at the top of the league table and have a 100% record.
