Rangers have this afternoon confirmed the transfer of Billy Gilmour to Chelsea for a fee believed to be in the region of £500k plus future add-ons.

In a statement on the club website, Rangers said:

After breaking into Graeme Murty’s under-20 side at the tail end of 2016, Gilmour became a regular feature in the Development Squad over the last 6 months and has attracted interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and a host of Premier League clubs.

With the club set to do well financially out of the move it’s a decent piece of business but, with Gilmour tipped for the very top, it was always going to be difficult to keep a old of him.

Everyone at GTBFO wishes Billy the best of luck at Chelsea.
