Chelsea star Billy Gilmour has been tipped for a place at Euro 2020 with Scotland by national legend Sir Kenny Dalglish.

Dalglish worked with Scotland manager Steve Clarke at Liverpool, when Clarke served as the Scottish football icon’s assistant manager. But now he is urging him to make a big decision in his Euro 2020 squad, by taking Chelsea midfielder Gilmour.

Ryan Jack and Kenny McLean are missing in that area through injury and Gilmour has started in recent Chelsea matches. Dalglish believes he deserves a maiden call (SP): “Gilmour put in a first-class performances for Chelsea against Manchester City, and kept his place for the midweek clash against Arsenal.

“He was taken off, but that was down to a tactical switch rather than how the lad was performing. There is no doubt that Gilmour has the ability and the confidence to be in the squad. I have no concerns about him.”
