Well, doing range of motion stuff for the tightness makes complete and total sense. You can strengthen the musculature that moves the ankle, but, of course the ankle itself has little musculature so can't be "strengthened" by exercise. It all depends on the source of the "weak" feeling. If there has been permanent damage to the ligaments in the ankle this is likely not fixable, but bracing can make up for that. If the feeling stems from weakness of the calves etc, then the exercises will help that.

Good luck.
