I’d rather see Stephen Kelly come into the squad and stake a claim for a starting spot.
Me too.

Even if Gilmour is considered the better of the two, we will not benefit from his development in the long term. Kelly on the other hand might just push himself into the managers plans over the next few years, following what has been a good loan spell for him.

We should only loan players who will dramatically improve the team or have a buy at end of the loan option - Gilmour falls into neither category

So do you disagree with all loan moves then?
No I don't my point is he was at Rangers and we weren't good enough for him so off he went to Chelsea so why should we give him the opportunity to come back on loan to develop him as a player? If he took the huff at 15 for not being involved in a first team game what's he going to do if Gerrard doesn't play him?

Leave him where he is and let him do what he wants at Chelsea am sure they will punt him to Vitesse or any other club they have connections with to develop him.

He will likely go on loan to an EFL club next season. I think Chelsea will spend big in the summer as they are miles off the top teams right now and need 2 or 3 star quality players so I don't see him featuring.

He is probably a bit unlucky that he is too young to really figure this year because of the transfer ban and the fact that Lampard is under no pressure - this was the season to make that breakthrough.

i like billy. have seen him several times this season playing for chelsea. he is tidy and effective in the system they play surrounded and supported by 2 of kovacic, kante, jourginho. i dont see firstly chelsea allowing him to leave to come to rangers and perhaps controversially i dont see billy being successful with the way we are set up, the players he would have around him to support, and finally the way the rest of the spl play.

I highly doubt he 'took the huff'.

He was given the opportunity of a lifetime.

Go to a top Premiership club and work with the best, or hang around up here when Pedro was in charge.

He said himself on that football daft pod he thought he was going to be playing in a cup game but Murty picked someone else instead and that was it for him.

I guess a big wad of money and benefits for your family as a result of the move are going to help him make the decision but at the time it's not as if Chelsea are well known from bringing through youth to the first team. Been forced to do it this year because of their transfer ban and fair play to him for being a permanent fixture in the first team now.

He wanted to go so I wouldn't be in a rush to loan him to develop him for another clubs benefit.

Don't want him.back, chased then money after making out he was a huge rangers fan. He'd still be mega rich if he stayed had he really been a fan.

An opportunity of a lifetime for most on here would be making your debut for Rangers first team

It's a no for me if he wanted to play for Rangers he would have signed the contract offered by Rangers. Time to move on and promote our own youngsters in to the squad.

im with you on this one. i really dont think he will be a regular next season, at all.

talk of him being loaned to a PL team is also fantasy. he has barely featured and with the stakes so high for simply remaining in the league there are very few bottom-end teams that will take a punt on an un-tested kid.

much much much more likely to be loaned out to a championship side.

Most on here aren't professionals.

Remember these guys have short careers and would you rather piss about at a club that was a shambles at the time (when Pedro was in charge) or go and make a fortune in the best league in the world?

these threads should be banned. they just end up with snide digs and thats not fair on his family who post on here. It's like obsessing over the bird you nearly banged at 16 who is now a top model.

He is a chelsea player and looks like he is destined for big things, but a closed subject as far as we are concerned

Fs I’m kind of sick of the constant threads on a boy who chose to leave. He went, he’s doing well, great. Move on fs

He chose to leave, there is nothing to be gained by constant weekly threads of what if etc. He hasn't done anything for first team at our club and left before he even could have.
