David Weir's response when asked: Will Rangers spend big if promoted?

Rangers Gates

Mark Warburton's Rangers side are currently sitting 12 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship table.

Rangers assistant manager David Weir has admitted to BBC Radio Five Live programme The Monday Night Club that he does not know whether the Light Blues will have big money to spend in the summer.

Rangers are currently 12 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship table, and they appear certainties to be promoted.

If the Gers do go up, there is an expectation that they will need to enhance the quality of their squad to compete at the top of the Scottish Premiership, but Weir insists he does not know how much money his side will have to spend.

“I’m not sure,” Weir said, when quizzed on Rangers’ summer budget. “I don’t want to try and be boring, but we’re concentrating on this season. We still have to seal the deal, and get promoted. There’s still a lot to be done.

“But we’re always looking to improve and we’ll look to do that again in the summer, I’m sure.”

Rangers were extremely busy last summer, in what was Mark Warburton’s first chance to renovate his squad at Ibrox.

The Light Blues brought in a vast amount of players, and their ambition has been rewarded.

Rangers have made huge strides this season, and they appear to have one of the strongest squads in Scotland - despite not playing in the top tier.

Rangers will have a chance to test themselves against Premiership opposition in the coming weeks, as they have been drawn against Celtic in the Scottish Cup.
