Former Rangers midfielder Billy Gilmour has claimed Scott Brown is the best midfielder in Scotland “by far” – and Gers fans on social media aren’t impressed with the Chelsea youngster’s comments.
Gilmour told the Daily Record that Brown would have “bullied” him if he’d been thrown into the Gers first-team at this stage of his career – and claimed the Hoops skipper was comfortably the best in his position in the country.
Gers fans didn’t take too well to the youngster’s comments – with one fan saying they were glad the Light Blues “sold” the “clueless” midfielder to Chelsea last summer.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The irony of this being if Gilmour keeps developing at the same rate he has been he’ll end up a much better player then Brown. Such an exciting prospect and humble with it. https://t.co/9jWX4POSEY

He’s already proved he’s better, playing at a higher level and winning trophies there.

Gilmour left the Ibrox last summer to sign for Premier League gianrs Chelsea after winning rave reviews for the Gers’ Academy sides.
The 16-year-old was wanted by a host of clubs across Europe before committing his future to the Stamford Bridge giants and has impressed since moving south.
The teenager is currently in France with Scotland’s Under-21s as they take part in the Toulon Tournament for the second consecutive year after a long absence.
Since joining Chelsea, Gilmour has helped the Blues win the FA Youth Cup, scoring in the final and training with Chelsea’s first-team squad on a few occasions.
