Rangers boss McCoist still unsure about ex-Everton star Weir's plans

Rangers manager Ally McCoist insists he is no closer to knowing what veteran David Weir wants to do next season.

The inspirational 'Gers skipper, now 41, led the Glasgow club to a third straight Scottish Premier League title last season but it is uncertain if he will play on next season or not.

McCoist says he currently is unaware of the former Everton defender's plans but says he will sort them out with him this summer.

"We've not spoken yet," he said.

"David's views will be as important as anything so I want to speak to him and see how he feels, see what he wants to do, what he feels he can do.

"There will be part of David that will want to start his coaching as well so we will just need to wait and see what he wants to do. We will have a chat, it's not a problem."

As for a potential player-coach role for Weir, McCoist said he would have to discuss that with club owner Craig Whyte.

"I haven't given it that much thought and I would need to clear it with the owner," he added.

"That's something we could maybe look at.

"David has been fantastic for this place and this place has been fantastic for David.

"The least we can do is to have a sit down and a chat and a cup of tea, and see what he wants to do."
