Scotland and Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour was named as ‘Star of the Match’ as he made his first international start in tonight’s 0-0 draw with England at Wembley – and fans on Twitter were blown away by just how good the 20-year-old is.

Gilmour was one of four changes to the side in the enthralling draw with the Auld Enemy and the Chelsea star’s stunning midfielder masterclass will live long in the memory of the Tartan Army.

Pundits across both ITV and STV’s broadcast (except Lee Dixon) were waxing lyrical over Gilmour’s technical ability and reading of the game, with Graeme Souness hailing him as a “maestro” during the UK-wide coverage.
