“I grew up with Rangers since I was young,” Gilmour told Goal.

“I made a lot of friends and knew all the coaches so it was hard but it was time for a change. I wanted to fulfil a dream in the Premier League. It is the best league in the world.

“When you watch the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Jorginho and Kovacic – we have all the best players here so that’s why I wanted to come here to test myself. Joining Chelsea has been the right decision with everything that was there for me.

“The first season showed that when we won the quadruple so it was a great season. You can’t beat that really can you? In the squad now you learn a lot about your game with the team. Especially Jorginho, being the leader that he is but they are all good at talking to you and helping you out.

“It is exciting. The experience I am gaining is massive. When I came, it was Jody Morris in the Under-18s and Joe Edwards in the Under-23s so when you go around there you can feel a bit more relaxed because you know Joe and Jody. Then Lampard comes in – it is really good.

“He is doing really well. It is a real bonus he came back. There is a real togetherness when a lot of young players come over in training. Just being around the top players we have there, especially with the gaffer putting a lot of trust in the young ones.”
