Rangers Fans Excited as Billy Gilmour is Included in First-Team Squad at 15

Rangers fans are waiting for this afternoon’s Scottish Cup tie with Morton with more excitement than usual after learning their exciting young talent Billy Gilmour has been included in the match-day squad.

At just 15, he might seem incredibly young to be involved in senior football, particularly in Scotland, but Gilmour has been on the radar of scouts allover Europe for a while now, and has been training with the Gers first-team for a while.

And according to the Daily Record, he’s poised to take a spot on the bench for today’s fifth-round tie.

Given the off-field drama which has involved Mark Warburton and David Weir over the last few days, the news that the Rangers faithful could get a glimpse of the young prodigy has certainly cheered everyone heading to Ibrox up:

For all we know, he might not even get on the pitch,but if Gilmour does become Rangers’ youngest-ever player in the Scottish Cup this afternoon, it’ll certainly improve the mood of some supporters.

What do you make of his potential inclusion?
