Rangers winger Gregg Wylde pleads with David Weir to stay at Rangers

Rangers winger Gregg Wylde hopes David Weir stays at Ibrox as he cited the captain as a major influence on his rise to the Ibrox first team.

Weir, who lifted the Scottish Premier League trophy at the age of 41, is yet to announce his future plans but is considering playing on next season.

Rangers boss Ally McCoist held talks with owner Craig Whyte as they look to rebuild for next season and Wylde is hoping Weir will be part of those plans.

The 20-year-old said: "Davie Weir has been really good with me on and off the pitch. He's like a second father to me. He helps me before games and looks after me. If he stays with the club, whether as a player or in a coaching role, it will be a massive boost for us."
