Some fans hail international display of 20-year-old on Chelsea books

‘Joy to watch’: Some fans rave about internatonal display of 20-year-old on Chelsea’s books

Billy Gilmour was in acton on Friday for Scotland in a World Cup qualifier – and some international fans on Twitter were left amazed by the quality performance from the Chelsea youngster.

Gilmour, 20, is a super talent who’s struggled for minutes this season during his loan at Norwich City. However, he’s still a crucial player for his country.

The central midfielder started during Scotland’s 2-0 win yesterday away to Moldova, which secured their World Cup play-off place.

Scotland fans rave about Chelsea prodigy Gilmour

A selection of Scotland fans on social media believe that Gilmour was top drawer against Moldova in the centre of the park alongside Celtic skipper Callum McGregor. 

It’s been a difficult campaign for Gilmour so far, as he’s failed to nail down a spot in the Norwich starting line-up like most expected. 

There are plenty of frustrated Chelsea supporters who are desperate for their rising star to get more football, so the recent sacking of Norwich manager Daniel Farke could end up being good news depending on who replaces him at Carrow Road.

Gilmour helped pulled the strings in his latest Scotland outing with his exquisite range of passing. Also, he showed a real drive on the ball to dribble forward with intent into spaces. 

Harry Redknapp is shocked the 20-year-old isn’t playing more for Norwich. Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere is a huge admirer of the Chelsea-owned youngster

Here are some Scotland fans reacting to Gilmour’s latest display:
