'Clueless', 'Disrespectful' - Rangers fans react as ex-Ger calls Celtic star 'best' in Scotland

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:

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.
