A lot of fans with major chagrin over Billy Gilmour’s departure to Chelsea, who still hold a grudge to this day, have gone a touch quieter, following his mother’s antics at the midfielder’s unveiling at Carrow Road.

Gilmour, a season-long loan at Norwich, was being presented with his whole family, but it was his mum’s behaviour that got the attention.

Before we go into that, we need to remind you of what so many fans argued:

That he has a Celtic family, that they told him to leave Rangers for Chelsea for both money and because they’re a Celtic family – in other words, he (and his family) got absolutely slaughtered for the decision to move south.

His mother’s antics, we hope, have helped a lot with this misinformation – mother Gilmore, a fanatical Rangers fan, like her 20-year old son, refused to touch the green of the Norwich scarf.

And it made a LOT of headlines.

Yes, his father and brother may well be Celtic fans, but at the least it’s a family split right down the middle, and his father and mother would have had equal influence on his decision to move to Chelsea.

So, let’s maybe try to drop the stuff about tribalism and how his parents wanted the money and him to be away from Rangers.

His parents made the call in the best interests of their son, and he had, of course, the final say, even at 15.

Anyone with a 15 year old son or nephew will know they are not naïve idiots and they can think for themselves.

So the lad made the call with a heavy heart, for his own reasons, and went south.

But it wasn’t because his mammy and daddy told him to.

  1. Just all let us wish the boy all the best in his career no matter what his family are, think and hope he’s going to be one of the best our club and country have produced in a very long time

  2. You can’t really argue with his decision considering where he is now. And sadly consider where he might be if he had stayed. On loan at Dundee? And his Mum is hot!

  3. Billy Gilmour is wished all the very best by the majority of all Rangers fans I know. I’m sure he thought long and hard about leaving Rangers but he made the correct decision . I wish I’d done something similar for my own son when he had a chance from a few English clubs to move to English football early in his career too , he might have played at a higher level even more so than he did in Scotland. He hopefully is destined to be a great. His Mother’s reaction to the scarf set up was very amusing and definitely something I would have done myself . I wish him and his mother nothing but the very best.
