Billy Gilmour expressed his delight on social media on Sunday evening after being involved with the first team in the Gers’ cup win over Greenock Morton.
The 15-year-old was not part of his side’s 18-man match squad which won 2-1 at Ibrox, but he was warming up with the team before the clash and he did pick up some first hand experience of what is involved around a senior match.
The young starlet has not yet made his senior debut for Rangers, but he is considered a massive talent and has the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea watching him.
In a message to fans on his personal Twitter account after the Morton clash, Gilmour shared that he was happy to be a part of the side in their victory.
“Glad to be involved with the first team today and a great win,” wrote Gilmour.

The match on Sunday marked Rangers’ first since manager Mark Warburton left the club on Friday evening.
Graeme Murty, who took charge of the game has worked with the Rangers youth team since joining in the summer and he will be fully aware of the capabilities of Gilmour.
The youngster is expected to be involved in many first team squads in the future and it is expected that it won’t be long before he’s making his senior debut for Rangers.
