Where is David Weir now?

Regarded as an Everton legend, David Weir spent eight years on Merseyside including many as captain before returning to Scotland where he saw out his career with Rangers until 2012 when he finally hung up his boots.

During his time at Ibrox, Weir was a member of a fantastic Rangers side which won a number of trophies including the the Scottish Premier League title three times, the Scottish Cup twice and the Scottish League Cup on three occasions.

He also won the SFWA Footballer of the Year and the Scottish Premier League Player of the Year awards in 2010.

A Scottish international, Weir represented his country 69 times winning his last cap at the record-breaking age of 40 years and 116 days.

Upon retiring from playing, Weir returned to England and rejoined Everton where he worked as an academy coach until June 2013 when he was appointed as the new manager of Sheffield United.

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

However, he wasn’t out of the game for long because in December 2013 he was appointed as assistant manager at Brentford working with Mark Warburton.

After a successful 2014-15 campaign where the duo 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.

Despite avoiding relegation on the last day of the season, the pair’s Forest side struggled once again the following season and both Warburton and Weir were sacked in December 2017 after only nine months in charge.

Weir was back in football in July 2018 when he was appointed as pathway development manager at Brighton and Hove Albion.

His role is to oversee the players sent out by the Seagulls to other clubs on a temporary basis.
