David Weir, the former Everton and Rangers captain, now a coach at Goodison Park, believes new signing Steven Naismith is a perfect fit for his new club and in particular Nikica Jelavic, the striker with whom he enjoyed a prolific partnership at Ibrox.
Five months after Jelavic left Rangers for Everton, Naismith has joined him on a free transfer, signing a four-year deal after he refused to have his Rangers contract transferred to the newco.
"When they played together they did very well and they can combine," said Weir. "Steven can play in a number of positions and can also contribute in different areas. He has a lot of strings to his bow and the fact he can play with Nikica is a benefit also."
