Glasgow Rangers captain David Weir has become the oldest-ever winner of the Scottish Football Writers' Player of the Year award.

Weir, who turns 40 on Monday, has gone from strength to strength since moving to Rangers initially on a six-month deal from Everton in January 2007.

The former Falkirk and Hearts defender has missed only three SPL matches since and has helped Rangers to six major trophies and the UEFA Cup final.

"It has exceeded expectations, without a shadow of a doubt," Weir said.

"I just came to Rangers for a few months, to try and help stabilise the club. The target back then was just to make sure we finished second in the SPL.

"So to go from that to winning championships and cups has been incredible.

"I'm proud of this, because good Rangers teams in the past haven't won championships. Hopefully this means the current crop will be remembered as a good team."
