Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour has missed out on a Scotland call-up for Euro 2020 play-off against Israel despite his brilliant form for Chelsea which saw him named man of the match in consecutive victories over Liverpool and Everton.

Despite calls for the teenager to earn a call-up to the Scotland senior team, he was selected for their Under 21s on Tuesday morning for their European Championship qualifiers with Croatia and Greece later this month.
