We can't possibly imagine what will be going through Gilmour's head at the moment.

For the past twelve months, he's had the media on toast with his performances. He's head-and-shoulders above anything we have at that level, I'm lead to believe and when you're that good, the belief comes with it. He'll be driven and motivated beyond belief, so he'll see Chelsea as a challenge; one much, much bigger than Rangers.

Tell him to look at Islam Feruz and he'll probably claim that he's better.

£2,500 and the rest, mate. As has been well documented by ex-Chelsea youth players, such as McEachran and Woods, go to a Chelsea under-19s match and you'll see boys never heard of before, boys who haven't played a single minute of first team football, but who are taking home £15,000 per-week.

Chelsea had to chase Feruz and put up a fight for him, so he'll certainly be on more than £2,500 per-week.

Your pretty much on the money mate, however even when good enough, new surroundings, new manager and new expectations can stifle a young players development...Not suggesting young Gilmour couldn't handle the step up; however I do hope his folks are sensible enough to take everything into consideration.

The flip side of "take a look at Feruz" is that he might take a look at the conveyor belt of young talent that was starring for our youth teams and then stacking shelves by 20. There's maybe a few more names that broke through in recent years but that was likely owing in large part to the level we were playing at.

His parents should advise him to stay at Rangers until he establishes himself in the first team imo. Chelsea mess their youngsters about and very very few break into the first team.

 

 

If he wants fast cash then maybe Chelsea is the right option but if he wants a successful career he should stay at Ibrox.

Since when did we have an excellent record bringing youngsters into the first team?

Chelsea send their youngsters off to the likes of Ajax, BM, Valencia and so on where they get European football and get to play at a high level.

Even if he did move their and get punted on laon it's still a hell of a lot better than playing in this shit hole of a league.

It's sheer blue tinted specs for folk to think a player is going to stay here than earn a fortune with the chance playing for some highly rated European or at worst a championship outfit like Abraham which is still light years ahead of the shite we face week in week out.

We all want him to stay yes but we are not in a position to stop more lucrative options like this anymore.

Fair comment .We don't, but our club needs to produce more than we have in the past given or financial restraints.

CHELSEA have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Rangers starlet Billy Gilmour.

Goal say the 15-year-old will move for a £500,000 fee in the summer.

The youngster had a trial at Chelsea's Cobham training ground and was convinced to leave the Scottish giants.

:panic::winnings:

Sounds like he's chasing the money. I think he's mad to go there. Look at the kids at Monaco who play every week. They will sign muti million pound deals when they move. Chelsea is a graveyard for youth

Superbly talented but probably  no more so than another 30 guys kicking around Chelseas training ground, we will never know if he would have made it here so if its 500k for a skelf of potential with maybe sell on clauses inserted and if he does not want to be here so be it, I think we got Gattuso under similar circumstances so its swings and roundabouts.

Now the abuse :lol: 

500k for a player who's no even got all his pubes is decent business.

Folk need understand we can't compete with these clubs anymore, players play for money not history.

Money  now, but he will be playing for a top 6 scottish premiership side in less then 4 years making shit money for the rest of his career.

He should establish himself at rangers to get the experience he needs and make decent money his whole career.

Hope he makes the right decision

How do you know that? 

Fleck stuck around for a bit and done fuck all despite the hype so it's hardly a sure thing. 

This boy can move to Chelsea, earn a fortune plus play at a higher level out on loan at a better standard of football. 

The only folk who see this as a bad move are of course us because we want to keep out talents but it's daft to expect a promising player rejecting lucrative deals from the biggest clubs in the world to play in this shit hole of a league.

Wouldn't be surprised if he get's loaned back to us.

 

He'll almost certainly be out on loan at somewhere next season, i'm sure Chelsea have a crazy amount of youngsters out on loan at any one time.

Why would they loan us him when he hasn't played a game for us yet?

£500,000 is good money for him.

Chelsea buy players like Gilmour with absolutely no intention of ever putting them in the first team, they'll look to develop him and eventually sell him on.

If the boy wants to go then good luck to him, 500k is great business for someone who's yet to play a game.

I'd take the £500k no problem. We'd be lucky to get that for half the duds that Warburton bought.

Chelsea have a track record of buying up youngsters and sending them out on loan. At his age (15 still?) you could argue they'll want to see him training at their own cademy; but it's just as likely they'll allow him to continue to train with us. His age also means they might not want to remove him from his family.

Either way he'll be far closer to getting a game with our first team than with Chelsea's.

That's a good question, I think it depends how well we've got a contract with him tied up. 

 

He is under 16 so not on a professional contract just on youth registration. This will be his first contract. Chelsea have around 38 youth team players on loan so chances of him getting on are limited. If he goes it will be for money not football or his long term career.

Latching onto an unsubstantiated news story and giving the wee guy abuse for it :lol: Get a grip and wait for the actual facts to come out.

Yeah he's not going to get a game at Chelsea we know that but I can't see him coming back here if he can't get a game as it is either unless you are talking about a few seasons down the line.

He's only 15 and you can bet your life folk will lose their shit if we are struggling and playing a 15/16 year old loanee who left us for Chelsea. 

He will go into their youth set up no doubt and in a year or two will get fired out on loan to a domestic championship side or Europe if he kicks on. 

Folk saying it's career suicide obviously don't see the players who Chelsea loan out and who play in their academy (Who have won multiple youth CL titles) and go on to play for various top teams from in and around Europe. Where exactly do our youth players end up? 

Blue tinted specs off

If we're going to sell the boy then I would hope we add in % fee clause from any future transfer.
