The future of former Rangers youth and Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour is now “uncertain” after the sacking on Blues boss Frank Lampard, according to a report.
The Mirror also claims that Gilmour, 19, remains a player of interest at Ibrox whilst Serie A side Napoli are another team monitoring his situation this month.
Reports concerning his future have cropped up after ex-Stamford Bridge midfielder Lampard – who gave Gilmour his debut at Chelsea – was sacked this week.
Set to be replaced by German coach Thomas Tuchel, it remains to be seen if Gilmour will be a part of the ex-PSG boss’ plans or he will be moved on to continue his development elsewhere.
Rangers have been routinely linked with a loan move for Gilmour in the press with the talented young Scotland midfielder coming through the youth ranks at Ibrox.
Back in December, the Scottish Sun claimed that Rangers had made an approach for Gilmour with a view to loaning the player this month.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard would then claim this “just people putting two and two together and looking for stories”, even if he admitted Gilmour is a “fabulous little player” [Rangers].
The other reportedly interested party in Gilmour, Napoli, are also managed by ex-Gers midfielder Gennaro Gattuso but there has been nothing concrete regarding any interest.
Lampard’s sacking at Chelsea has sent a bit of a ripple through their expensively assembled squad and it remains to be seen how Tuchel will progress with the team this season.
But should Rangers boss Steven Gerrard perhaps heed the warnings of Lampard’s situation should Liverpool ever come a’knocking for the Ibrox gaffer?
