Chelsea snapped up another exciting young prospect this week when they secured the signing of 15-year-old Scottish star Billy Gilmour from Rangers for £500,000.
The former Rangers youngster didn’t make a senior appearance for the Scottish side but has impressed for the U20s this season and Rangers caretaker boss Graeme Murty admitted that he considered using the teenager over the weekend.
While Chelsea fans are happy about the signing of a youngster with so much potential, some Rangers fans aren’t.
King: "Billy, would you like to stay with Rangers, or would you rather play for this twisted, loveless billionaire?"

Gilmour away too Chelsea before going on loan to 34 teams and then getting released and signing for Torquay. Waste of a promising talent
