Sheffield United looking at ex-Rangers skipper Weir

League One club Sheffield United have confirmed they are pondering a move for former Rangers defender David Weir.

The 41-year old veteran left the Glasgow giants last month in a bid to find first team football after he was sparingly used by Ally McCoist and could potentially be a Blades player soon according to manager Danny Wilson.

"There is no rush to do anything. He is out of contract and can sign any time," Wilson told the club's official website.

"His travelling is easy and he is very relaxed. He wants to keep playing so he continues to have ambition.

"David has been training with us for the last two weeks, through no commitment, but if anything does happen to anyone in our squad then we need to have our finger on the pulse.

"You look at David and you would think he was 30! He is a terrific athlete and a great model to the younger lads."
