David Weir is working as the assistant manager at Scottish Championship side Rangers.

Kenny Black has explained to The Daily Record the importance of David Weir to Rangers.

Former Rangers defender Weir was appointed the Gers’ assistant manager in the summer following the arrival of Mark Warburton as the boss.

“David Weir has a very important role for Mark Warburton in that respect,” former Rangers midfielder Black told The Daily Record.

“This is Mark’s first taste of it up here at a club like Rangers but Davie has seen it and done it. He’ll be great in terms of helping the manager deal with the expectations.”

Rangers are one of the two biggest clubs of Scotland, and the expectations on the team are huge.

The Gers are playing in the Scottish Championship at the moment, and the fans expect them to gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.

Weir, a former Scotland international central defender, played for Rangers from 2007 to 2012 and is considered as one of the greatest players in the club’s history.

The 45-year-old knows what it means to work at Rangers, and his presence is certainly going to help manager Warburton understand more about the club.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 36 points from 13 matches, five points clear of second-place Hibernian.
