Profile

Squad Number: 11
Position: Outside Left
Date of Birth: Saturday, January 18, 1958
Birthplace: Johnstone
Nationality: Scottish
Height: 6' 0
Weight: 11st 9lbs
Signed: 28th May 1981
Full Name: Peter Russell Weir.

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.
