David Weir

Where is David Weir now?

A Toffees legend, David Weir spent eight years at Everton  many of which as club captain. He also gained the majority of his Scottish caps whilst at the club because of his superb displays.



Weir left Merseyside and returned to Scotland where he saw out his career with Rangers before retiring in 2012.

David Weir returned to England and rejoined Everton where he worked as an academy coach until June 2013 when he was appointed manager of Sheffield United.

Unfortunately his tenure at Sheffield United lasted only 13 games before he was sacked after a string of poor results.

Weir wasn’t out of the game for long because in December 2013 he took on the post of assistant manager at Brentford working with Mark Warburton.

After a successful 2014-15 campaign where they reached the play-offs, both Warburton and Weir left the club after a management restructure.

The pair were immediately snapped up by Scottish giants Rangers on a three year contract in June 2015 and enjoyed a successful first year by clinching the Scottish Championship and promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.

Unfortunately for Weir and Warburton they had mixed success in their first season back in the Premiership and left the club in February 2017 after some bad results left them trailing league leaders Celtic by 27 points.

In March 2017 and just 32 days after leaving Rangers Warburton and Weir joined Championship side Nottingham Forest who were two points above the relegation zone.
