Weir to sign new deal

The 39-year-old made more than 40 appearances for the Gers in their title winning season.

“I don’t think there will be any problem agreeing a new deal,” he told the Evening Times.

“I haven’t spoken to the manager this week because I have been on a coaching course.

“But before the end of the season he gave me the option of staying on for another year and I want to take it.

“There is a willingness to reach an agreement from both parties.”
