Rangers urged to sign Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour

Former Celtic star Kris Commons says Rangers should move for Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour.

Writing for the Daily Mail, Commons believes he would be perfect for Rangers, as he struggles on-loan at Norwich City.

He said: “Norwich are lucky to even have a player of Gilmour’s quality. He should be the first name on their team sheet.

“If Gilmour is still twiddling his thumbs in January, Rangers should get on the phone to Chelsea and at least ask the question.

“Some people might think it would be a backward step to return to his old club. But Rangers are a different animal now compared to when Gilmour left in 2017.

“I’m a big fan of Steven Davis and he’s been brilliant for Rangers. But I would have Gilmour ahead of him all day. That’s how good the boy is.

“He could transform the Ibrox midfield and offer a whole new dynamic as the deep-lying playmaker.

“Steven Gerrard was one of the best midfielders of his generation. Gilmour would benefit massively from learning from someone like that in training.

“Whatever happens, he needs to start playing football. If that’s not going to be at Norwich, then Chelsea need to step in and do the right thing.”
