Lee Carsley taunts David Weir on Twitter

Fans at Goodison Park

Lee Carsley made a joke about Rangers assistant manager David Weir's age.

Lee Carsley has taken a jovial swipe at former Everton team-mate David Weir over his age on Twitter.

The Rangers assistant manager turned 46 today and in tribute, the Toffees' official Twitter account paid homage with a picture of their former defender celebrating a goal.

But the 42-year-old seized the opportunity to ridicule his old colleague. Both have since gone their separate ways since their Goodison Park days, but the banter remains strong between the duo.

Weir and Carsley played together on Merseyside for five years, before the former left to join Rangers in 2007

Carsley spent a few months as Brentford coach on an interim basis after Marinus Dijkhuizen was fired in September. Dijkhuizen had replaced Mark Warburton who, along with his assistant Weir, joined the Ibrox club last summer.

It's been a rotten season for the Toffees who, under Roberto Martinez, were knocked out of the FA Cup semi-finals last month and look set for a bog-average mid-table finish. They sit 12th with two Premier League games to go.
