Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour has impressed in the few games he has played for Chelsea this season.

The 18-year-old joined Chelsea in 2017 after going through the ranks at Rangers and is highly rated at the Bridge.

Gilmour may be seen as one for the future, but he has upped his reputation after two back to back man of the match performances against Liverpool and Everton, just before the league was closed.

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes, who is currently in charge of West Ham, has been asked on BBC Scotland’s Scottish football podcast which compatriot he would sign if he could, and the West Ham manager didn’t hesitate to call Gilmour.

“The one who if I could sign tomorrow I would is Billy Gilmour after his opening performances for Chelsea,” the 57-year-old said. “He’s looked like a seasoned pro, he’s looked like somebody who’s hungry, who’s in love with the game.

“He’s typical of what my memories are of what Scottish players were like going back many, many years. We were always good players, really talented football players, and at the moment Billy Gilmour in the short period I’ve seen him has looked like that all day long.

“We need to start getting a Scottish national team that gives us some hope but he’s certainly a really talented looking player.”
