Book Description

Aug. 2 2012
David Weir had a lot to celebrate in 2010: a second successive Scottish Premier League title as captain of Rangers, and his 40th birthday. Weir's is a tale of triumph on the pitch but also victory, in a wider sense, over the idea that all top-level footballers are finished in their mid-30s. In the course of captaining Rangers to their success in 2009-10, Weir became the oldest outfield player to represent the club since 1945. In this autobiography, Weir explains in detail why he stopped playing for Scotland under Berti Vogts and later returned when Walter Smith was appointed—for the first time, he gives his side of story. He gives an insight into the high of playing in the 1998 World Cup finals for his country, their last appearance on the game's greatest stage, to the low of the chaotic 2-2 draw in the Faroe Isles four years later. Like thousands of footballers before him, he could just have accepted his time was up and headed the golf course. He had a young family and a father who was suffering from Alzheimer's to help care for. Rather than give up, he moved from Everton to Rangers in 2007, making his debut for his childhood favorites at a mere 36 years and 236 days. Since then, Weir has helped them to six trophies and a European final in 2008. Weir's is a story of battling against the odds, a determination to keep playing at the top level and proving he could, despite the doubts of others and, indeed, himself.
