Mark Warburton is getting his Glasgow Rangers side ready for their first season back in the Scottish Premiership for several years.

Rangers assistant boss David Weir has claimed that while the backroom team are working on preparing the squad for their upcoming return to the Scottish Premiership, there is no need to explain the demands of the top flight to Clint Hill as he will have no problem adapting his game, the Evening Times reports.

The former Queens Park Rangers defender is one of eight new signings to arrive through the door at Ibrox this summer as Mark Warburton looks to bolster his side ready to compete at the highest level.

And Weir is confident that the 37-year-old will need little help working out what he needs to do to be a success for the Light Blues.

"We are trying to help them all. You try and have a chat with all of them at different stages," he told the Evening Times.

"It won't be a problem for Clint. He is an experienced guy who has played at different levels at different stages of his career.

"He will handle whatever comes his way and that's why he has played so long and been as successful as he has.

"My job is to try to help all the lads as much as I can but when I speak to Clint I will give him my thoughts on my experiences. However, he has the equipment to handle it all."

Though Hill has seen his game-time reduced in the past two seasons - he has made just 32 league appearances in that time, while he played 40 games in the Championship the year before - his knowledge and understanding of the game means that he still has a crucial role to play for the Gers.

The back four will have to be a lot more disciplined this season in comparison with how they were able to play last year, so having someone like the veteran in their ranks should help them make that transition for the fixtures where Warburton needs the defence to stay tight and see out the game.
