Walter Smith's side saw their hopes of reaching Germany extinguished at the weekend, as Belarus claimed a 1-0 win at Hampden Park.
Weir, 35-years-old, claims he will look to continue on the international scene as Scotland begin to build for the European Championship in 2008.
When asked about whether he had any intention of retiring from Scotland duty, Weir was adamant in his stance.
"I would never say that,'' said Weir. ''I will just look to the next game and hopefully try and get picked for that.
"We need to rebound from that result against Belarus. It's not sunk in yet.
''We are disappointed about the performance as well as the score.
"The fans came out in their numbers looking for a win and it wasn't until the second half that we gave them what they wanted to see.
"The early goal set us back, it shook us and it took time to recover. We had a go after the interval but it never happened for us.
"But we can't get down about it. We can still go out on a high against Slovenia on Wednesday."
Meanwhile, Wigan midfielder Lee McCulloch will miss Wednesday's game after picking up a knock against Belarus.
