In a recent report, the Daily Record (as cited by Glasgow Live) has claimed that Rangers are plotting a sensational reunion with Billy Gilmour. The Chelsea youngster has been impressive for both club and country and is now gearing up for more first-team minutes, having grabbed the attention already.
The 20-year-old midfield prodigy left Ibrox four years ago to join the Blues’ esteemed academy ranks and made his first-team debut under Frank Lampard a couple of years later. His performance against Liverpool in a FA Cup fixture received massive plaudits last year and the Scotsman eventually gained Thomas Tuchel’s trust who replaced Lampard midway through the previous term.
Gilmour was handed a sporadic role by the German and got included in the Champions League final squad. Although he remained as an unused substitute, Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Manchester City earned him a much-deserved winners’ medal for his contribution in a couple of group stage contests. The midfielder made his senior Scotland debut in a pre-Euro 2020 friendly and won the man of the match award against mighty England in their stalemate at Wembley.
However, the Tartan Army missed his presence (ruled out due to covid) in the middle of the park against Croatia. His stakes are rising though, following an array of exquisite outings and different clubs are circling like vultures to have him on a short-term deal.
Why Rangers Should Get The Nod Over Norwich City
While Norwich City are closing in on securing his services on a season-long loan, Rangers are set to make a last-ditch attempt to bring Billy Gilmour back in familiar surroundings. The Canaries have Premier Lague football to offer week in week out, but the Bears’ opportunity to make it through to the main round of the prestigious Champions League might make the race more intriguing. The profile of European football would help him grow his game under Steven Gerrard.
Chelsea have a high-profile central midfield with N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic challenging and covering each other across competitions. Gilmour is yet to secure a similar status but holds the traits to replace them in the long run. His style of play resembles Kante and the London heavyweights must make the correct call to accelerate his progress. A return to Glasgow would hand him the taste of the Scottish game and compete for silverware over relegation battle.
