Scotland and Rangers defender David Weir is looking to celebrate his 40th birthday preparing for the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa.

Asked if he could see himself still playing at 40, the 38 year said,: "I don't see why not. I really don't see why I should start putting a ceiling on things.

"The 2010 World Cup would be a great target, of course, I would love that but why put barriers up or have an end point?

"I have always said I will play as long as I can and I'll make myself available for as long as I can.

"As long as someone keeps picking me, I'll keep turning up.

"I'm enjoying it, even if people keep telling me how old I am and how I don't have long left!

"I just play it as I see it, taking things week by week or day by day rather than thinking about next season."
