Despite his tender age, Gilmour has already made a strong impression on the Gers hierarchy by impressing when called-up to the club’s Under-20 team and also fared well in Scotland’s Victory Shield side back in November.
And now it seems his progression has been recognised by Mark Warburton and David Weir, with Gilmour the standout name in the group of youngsters drafted in to train with the senior pros:

Myles Beerman, Liam Burt, Jordan Houston and Zak Rudden were also put through their paces at the club’s Auchenhowie training base, and images of the session were posted on the official Rangers website afterwards.
After impressing amongst players at his own age group, Gilmour has been linked with a whole host of top European clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea and even Barcelona.
He may still be waiting on his sixteenth birthday, but should Mark Warburton be seriously thinking about handing Gilmour his debut in the Rangers top team?
