David Weir has been appointed as Sheffield United’s new manager.

The former Scotland international, who represented Glasgow Rangers and Everton during an illustrious playing career, agreed terms with the League One club this morning.

Weir, aged 43, joins United following a spell in charge of the Liverpudlian’s reserve team.

He spent a month training at Bramall Lane before returning to Merseyside last year.

Weir progressed through the ranks with Falkirk before transfering to Heart of Midlothian and then Everton ahead of his move to Ibrox.
