David Weir claims Rangers players must live up to demands

By Emma Sanders

Assistant manager David Weir claims Rangers players have to live up to the huge demands of playing for the club and must live up to the pressure.

The Ibrox senior figure said his side will take time to come together after struggling to gain consistency so far this season.

“I think it does [take time.] Rangers is very unique in that respect and that demand is placed on you,” said Weir, as reported by the Evening Times.

“We have got to be realistic as to some of the lads and where they have been and where we need them to be and what Rangers demands. I think they are learning all the time.

“But playing for Rangers can be difficult, the demands are really high and it doesn’t happen overnight.”

Rangers are currently in third position following their 1-1 draw with Ross County on Sunday but have won just five of their opening 12 fixtures in the league this season.

They are 11 points adrift of Celtic who top the league table and suffered a humiliating defeat against their rivals in a 5-1 thumping earlier this season.

The Gers take on Dundee following the international break and it’s vital they secure all three points in order to keep up pressure on Aberdeen in second place.
