Profile:
Aberdeen and Scottish record signing at that time, when Weir joined the team he supported as a boy in a 330,000 deal that saw Ian Scanlon go to St Mirren. Weir was a deceptive winger, and provided a vital balance in the great Dons side of the 80's. Played a major part in the Dons Gothenburg success, and was also a Scottish international. Although his Pittodrie career was blighted by injury, Weir was a popular player at Pittodrie, and so often the scourge of Scottish defences. Joined Leicester City in 1987.
At the end of his playing career Peter went into coaching, eventually doing a sterling job with the Aberdeen FC Youth Academy in West Scotland.
