Video: Roy Keane Says Billy Gilmour ‘Looked Like a World Class Player’ Against Liverpool

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has lavished praise on Billy Gilmour – by insisting the teenage Scot looked like a world class player against Liverpool a few days ago.

Gilmour was handed only his eighth senior appearance for Chelsea in Tuesday night’s 2-0 victory over Jurgen Klopp’s side in the FA Cup fifth round and, as we told you at the time, the 18-year-old was the standout player.

When appearing as a pundit on Sky Sports Super Sunday coverage this afternoon, Keane was asked for his appraisal of Gilmour and the Irishman didn’t hold back when expressing his admiration:

Gilmour was given the chance to start his first Premier League match for Chelsea against Everton today, and surely it’s only a matter of time before the youngster is given a senior Scotland call-up by Steve Clarke?

What do you make of Keane’s effusive comments?
