Billy Gilmour may just be 19, but the young midfielder is already showing skills way beyond his age.

The playmaker has the confidence and swagger in the middle of the park, awareness and positional discipline.

Explaining his attributes on the pitch, Gilmour said: “You have to be confident in yourself to go and receive the ball.

“You need to be always checking your shoulders and knowing where you are on the pitch. If you don’t do that, you’re going to get yourself in a lot of trouble.”

He went on: “The game gets quicker and more tactical in the Premier League so you always need to know where you are on the pitch.

“It’s then about not taking too many chances, making sure you do things full of confidence, receive the ball with both feet and just trust your own ability.”

Gilmour is expected to be a top player in the near future, and he’s already showing the confidence of a top-quality player.
