Former Everton and Rangers defender David Weir rejoined the Merseyside club in a coaching capacity on Tuesday - and then immediately played for the reserves.

Everton announced that the 41-year-old had taken up a post at Goodison Park that will also see him eligible to play for the second string.

And with reserves boss Alan Stubbs short of defenders, Weir went straight into the side for Tuesday afternoon's 'mini-derby' at Liverpool.
