Rangers ‘Continue To Keep Tabs’ On Chelsea Star After Having January Enquiry Knocked Back

Rangers will “continue to keep tabs” on Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour, according to the Football Insider.

The website confirmed that the Gers made an initial enquiry about taking the 19-year-old on loan before Christmas, only to be told he was an important first-team player and wasn’t available.

However, after manager Frank Lampard was sacked by the Blues in January, Rangers tried again, with the hope being that new head coach Thomas Tuchel would sanction a temporary move for Gilmour.


A number of other teams, including Leicester, were also looking to snap up the teenager but Chelsea eventually came to the decision that they wanted to keep the midfielder for the rest of the season.

Tuchel is believed to have been left impressed by Gilmour in training but the player has still not featured in a matchday squad under the German, so the situation could well be revisited in the summer.
