Rangers 'would be amazing' if plan to re-sign Gilmour succeeds - English pundit

Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour should turn down a move to a mid-table Premier League side in favour of returning to Rangers, according to Paul Robinson.

The former Spurs and England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 20-year-old would benefit from competing for the league title and in the Champions League.

Gilmour was a bit-part player for Chelsea in the 2020-21 campaign, with 11 appearances to his name across all competitions.

According to The Sun (8 June), the centre-midfielder is considering leaving Stamford Bridge on loan and Ibrox sources have told Football Insider Rangers would be interested in taking him for a season.

Robinson backed the Scotland international to return to Glasgow to learn from legendary midfielders Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister.

“Rangers are a more attractive proposition than a mid-table Premier League side at the moment,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.

They are playing in the Champions League and will be competing for every domestic honour next year.

To learn under Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister, as a midfielder, would be invaluable.

What those two have done at Rangers over the past two years has been amazing. What better place to be? He would enjoy his football up there, Rangers would be amazing.

He would get a lot of the ball and they would be winning most weeks.

If he goes on loan to a mid-table Premier League side he would not be playing in Europe every week. I think Rangers would be the ideal move to further his progression.”
