Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has labeled Scotland international Billy Gilmour as one of the best Scottish talents ‘for the last 50 years.’

Gilmour has been loaned across the English Premier League by Chelsea to Norwich City, who Liverpool face on the first day of the new season. Klopp – who is without Scotland captain Robertson through injury – is excited by Carrow Road head coach Daniel Farke’s project, with Gilmour identified as a generational talent.

The German manager said: “I know how good they are and how great a job Daniel Farke is doing. They gave him, for what is a club like Norwich, incredible trust and a new four year contract which is absolutely great.

“So they believe in his work and the project and you can see that.  They lost good players, or one at least that I know about, but they did sensational business.

 

“Billy Gilmour is probably one of the biggest Scottish talents for the last 50 years. So it’s exciting what they’re doing and we have to be absolutely spot on.”
