Walter Smith brought David Weir to Merseyside in 1999, signing him from Heart of Midlothian.

Weir was highly thought of in Scotland and already capped at full international level but he endured a difficult start at Goodison with Smith playing him initially out of position at right-back. But he proved to be a terrific asset to a Club going through difficult times as he linked up well with fellow Scot Richard Gough in his first full season at the club and went on to build a strong partnership with Alan Stubbs.

He missed most of the 2003/4 season through injury – and watched on as Everton struggled – but was back a year later as he and Stubbs provided the defensive stability that allowed the team to go on and clinch a Champions League spot courtesy of a fourth place finish. Weir was appointed Club skipper for the 2005/06 season but an early exit from the Champions League and the Europa League proved frustrating and Moyes' side failed to emulate the heights of the previous campaign.

After the arrival of Joleon Lescott, Weir found opportunities limited and returned to Scotland with Glasgow Rangers in January 2007 where he would go on to captain the side to a period of trophy-glory. Weir returned to Everton in 2012 where he took up a coaching role but he later moved on to advance his managerial ambitions, taking up a short-lived managerial position at Sheffield United before moving into a coaching position at Brentford.
