  • David Weir enjoyed an eight-year spell at Everton as a player, later returning as a coach.

    A popular figure among Evertonians, David travelled an unorthodox route into the professional game, studying in the United States for four years, before eventually signing for his hometown team Falkirk.

    From there, he moved to Hearts, where he enjoyed an outstanding first season that led to international recognition for his country.

    A natural central defender, he left the Tynecastle outfit for Everton in February 1999 and became a regular fixture in the Blues' defence - consistently producing impressive performances.

    Six months after David's arrival, fellow Scot Richard Gough joined him at Goodison and the pair established a rock solid partnership at the heart of Everton's defence.

    Deputising for Gough as team captain for the majority of the 2000/01 campaign, David led by example, combining skill and composure, which influenced the rest of the side.

    He was later an integral part of the Everton side which finished fourth in the Premier League to secure Champions League qualification in 2005.

    Weir's first spell with the Club came to an end in January 2007 when he was tempted back to Scotland to link up with former Blues boss Walter Smith at Ibrox.

    He left Goodison Park having amassed a total of 267 first-team appearances, scoring nine goals.

    The former Scotland international was brought back to Goodison in February 2012 as a coach bit he also appeared for the Reserves.

    He left 16 months later to take over as manager of Sheffield United. After leaving Bramall Lane, he was then appointed assistant boss at Brentford.
