Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been handed another injury blow after Billy Gilmour picked up an injury while on international duty with Scotland U21.

According to The Sun, Gilmour was ruled out of Scotland Under-21s’ win over Croatia with a groin injury.

The 18 year old just made his debut in the 2-2 draw against Sheffield United before the international break and he will now undergo a scan on his return to Stamford Bridge to determine how long he could be out of action for.

Speaking after the game, Scotland Under-21s boss Scot Gemmill said: “Billy was injured in training on Monday. We wish him a speedy recovery.

“It’s come at a bad time for him since he’s just made his Chelsea debut.

“Everyone was gutted for Billy. If I put my manager’s hat on it was another opportunity for a different player.

“But when any player gets injured the night before a game at training then of course it is a huge blow.”
