Rangers veteran Weir hails Everton's new Finch Farm

Rangers defender David Weir has visited former club Everton and their new Finch Farm complex in the past week.

He told evertonTV: "I've just had a few days off, been down for a couple of days so I thought I'd take the opportunity to come in. I asked the manager if I could come in, he said that's fine and I've really enjoyed it.

"I've done a bit of training, I managed to join in with the lads and I really enjoyed it. I felt like I'd never been away.

"Bellefield had its attractions and everybody was sad to leave, but you come to a place like Finch Farm and you know you've made the right decision. It's a great place for the lads to work in, and obviously they're seeing the benefits of that now.

"It's got everything you need here. Bellefield was small and had a lot of history, but you've got to move with the times, this is the way forward, nothing is left to chance here, and everything is here for preparation and recovery from a Premier League game."
