Rangers want to sign Billy Gilmour on loan

Gilmour might be brought back to the club where he initially started his career.

Billy Gilmour : Career, Statistics and Performances

Billy Gilmour began his career at Rangers Academy and then Chelsea brought him, offering an option for a permanent deal.

He had made 13 appearances till now for the Blues. However, the Scottish midfielder made his complete debut on 25 September in a 7-1 EFL Cup victory against Grimsby Town.

His performances against Liverpool (2-0 win) in the FA cup and recently, the Champions League fixture against Krasnodar were impressive.

A reappearance to Rangers might be possible?

Rangers are still interested in bringing their former academy product back to the senior team.

However, Chelsea coach Frank Lampard has had full praise on Gilmour’s CL debut against Krasnodar.

I thought Billy was outstanding. The way he played today and how he trains, I see him growing with us. He’s going to be a Chelsea player so it’s just about making sure the pathway is right for him.

He made that pathway right last season and then got injured at the wrong time but playing like he did today, he’s got a lot to offer us.

-Frank Lampard

The Blues have already qualified for the Round 16 of Champions League and are 3rd in Premier League. So far, they had maintained a decent scoring profile in the season.

However, Rangers would not step back from this rival to sign him for a possible reunion with the club.

The Teddy Bears are enjoying a fine run under the manager turned former legendary player Steven Gerrard. They are unbeaten in the Scottish Championship with 14 wins and 2 draws.

The club has also reached the round of 32 under Europa League, remaining unbeaten in Group D. Gilmour might be a better option for Gerrard’s Light Blues as they would look for winning more and more trophies.
