Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has hailed Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour as a special talent ahead of the Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City.
“I’ve played against Billy a couple of times and I’ve spoken to him,” Robertson told PLZ Soccer. “He’s a confident lad and an unbelievable footballer.
“I played in one of his first starts when Chelsea played Liverpool in the FA Cup, when they beat us and he got man of the match.
“I remember going up to him after the game and thinking, ‘Keep doing what you’re doing and you’ll be in the Scotland squad before too long’.
“I know a few of the Chelsea boys and they say his attitude is spot on.
“He puts everything into training and when he gets his chance he never disappoints.
“Even at the age he is, the Chelsea manager trusts him in big games and to do that you’re doing something right.
“Billy’s a special talent and it’s about using that talent to keep level-headed — and according to the people close to him there is no doubt about that.
“He’ll have a huge future and a huge career in the game and I’m excited to see him grow.”
