David Weir has been told he will not be a first-choice at Ibrox next season and according to the Daily Record could be returning to England to play for the Clarets.
The 38-year old,central defender started his career with his hometown club of Falkirk before moving to Hearts in 1996.
Weir then signed for Everton and made his debut in a league match against Middlesbrough on 17 February 1999.
The Scottish International had his most successful spell playing for the Merseyside club.Over an eight year period he made 269 appearances for the Toffees also scoring 10 goals in the process. He served under two managers as captain of the club, Walter Smith and David Moyes and obtained most of his Scotland caps during his time at Goodison Park.
He was to team up again with Walter Smith, when the manager now at Rangers signed the defender in January 2007 on an initial six-month deal. Everton had released him from his contract early.
He played well enough for the Ibrox club to secure himself a one-year contract keeping him at Rangers until the end of the 2007-08 season.
This news if true is rather surprising and many Clarets will be hoping that the Daily Record have misprinted the rumour with Barnsley not Burnley interested in the player!
Owen Coyle is on record as saying he wants to reduce the average age of the club, so it begs the question of what we want with a 38-year old defender. Surely we can do better than that?
