Report: Rangers set for Billy Gilmour disappointment

Rangers look set to suffer disappointment in their bid to bring a Premier League midfielder to Ibrox in the transfer window, with a report claiming that Billy Gilmour is set to move elsewhere this summer.

The Gers had been hoping to bring Gilmour back to Ibrox, according to the Pink Un.

Gilmour, of course, began his career with the Light Blues. And he is now the midfield prospect that everyone is talking about after an impressive showing at Euro 2020.

Steven Gerrard had hoped to re-sign the 20-year-old on loan. However, the Pink Un reports that he is set to join Norwich City in this window.

And the Pink Un reports that he rejected the Gers due to his desire to remain in the Premier League as he looks to stake a claim to his parent club.

Loaning Billy Gilmour would have been a hugely impressive statement from Rangers

Gilmour has not had too many chances since making his first-team debut at Chelsea. However, when he has featured, he has often impressed.

It is little surprise that Rangers fans seemed delighted when previous links with Gilmour emerged back in January.

The youngster stole the show when Scotland were held by England at Wembley in their Euro 2020 meeting.

His performance was all the more impressive given that he had not featured in the opener against the Czech Republic.

So it would have been a real statement from the Gers had they landed Gilmour during this window.

However, there may be some who are not quite as disappointed that he is set to head elsewhere.

Rangers are continuing to build something incredibly impressive. They could be playing in the Champions League group-stages this coming season.

Gerrard therefore, would surely prefer to land players who could have a long-term future at Ibrox.

Of course, signing Gilmour is hardly an opportunity that he could have passed up. But it seems highly unlikely that there would have been any scope for another deal further down the line.
