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.
