Ian Wright has hailed Chelsea midfield maestro Billy Gilmour who delivered a brilliant cameo in Scotland’s win over Luxembourg on Sunday night before he was forced off due to a head injury in the 75th minute.

The diminutive playmaker showcased his talent during the 30 minutes he was on the field, playing a number of skilful passes to his teammates.

Wright told ITV Sports: “Brilliant, in respect of his one touch play.

“Very composed on the ball. Can run with the ball.

“Every time I’ve seen him play (for Chelsea), it’s been in that holding midfield. In this game, they were trying to get him forward.

“He’s got a lot of ability about him. He’s a very good player.”

Gilmour was left dazed after a dangerous challenge by Vorskla’s Olivier Thill and was substituted for James Forest in what appeared to be a precautionary move from Scotland boss Steve Clarke.

Chelsea and Scotland fans will hope he is available for the Tartan Army’s Euros 2020 opener against the Czech Republic next Monday.
