Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour was targeted by Liverpool fans during their game against Gilmour’s loan club Norwich.

Gilmour was the subject of homophobic chanting from a section of Liverpool fans as they defeated Norwich 3-0.

Liverpool released an official tweet to condemn the chants.

It reads: “The chant is offensive and inappropriate — a message we have repeatedly communicated alongside Kop Outs.

“We urge supporters to remember the inclusive values of the club and to refrain from using it in the future.”

Meanwhile, Gilmour has revealed that he joined Norwich on loan because their style of play suits his game.

“I had some options but for me Norwich was first choice. I came here, spoke to the boss, and everything he said sounded really good, the way he wants to play, the way he sees me fitting in. That was what made my choice easier to come to Norwich,’ Gilmour told Sky Sports.

“Norwich play football that suits my style, playing out from the back and wanting to keep the ball. For me, this was the perfect opportunity.

“This is my kind of style of play where I want to play out, get on the ball and make things happen.”
