Mills tips Gilmour to join Brentford ahead of Rangers after key development

Danny Mills has tipped Billy Gilmour to move to a Premier League club on loan instead of Rangers.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England and Leeds United defender claimed clubs will be “queuing up for his signature” if he decides to seek a temporary exit.

The Sun report the 20-year-old is considering a loan move and Ibrox sources have told Football Insider there will be interest from Rangers.

He played just two-and-a-half Premier League games under Tuchel but was part of the squad that won the Champions League.

Despite his lack of game time, he earned a call up to the Scotland squad for this summer’s European Championships.

Gilmour began his career with Rangers’ academy before making the switch to Chelsea in 2017 as a 16-year-old.

Asked about the youngster returning to Ibrox, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “I think there’ll be a lot of clubs queueing up for his signature,” 

“He’s a very talented boy. Brentford might be looking at him, he could come in and do a very good job and is a very good player. He wouldn’t have to move either, he could stay where he is. I think that helps a young player, a bit of stability.

“He’ll have several options to where he could go. He has to make the right decision for him. Be picky, be choosy and say ‘Right Ok, I’m going to go here for the good of me and for the development of my career.’

“I think he’ll have several options because he’s a very talented player.

“If he’s going to go to a Premier League club and play regularly then it’s definitely a better option than Rangers.

“He’ll learn a lot more there than by going to the Scottish league.”
