Report: Rangers receive financial boost, could land more money before end of season

Glasgow Rangers stand a chance to earn a huge windfall due to the deal they negotiated with Chelsea over the transfer of youngster Billy Gilmour, according to The Sunday Post.

The youngster has broken into the Blues first-team and was heavily praised for his performance during the London side’s 2-0 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup.

Rangers received a reported £2 million for Gilmour, added the report.

It has been claimed that the Ibrox club received £250,000 upon the youngster making his Premier League debut and they will receive a further payment of the same amount once he reached 10 Premier League appearances.

The report further added that Rangers have a 15 per cent sell-on clause on the player.

This means that the Gers could stand to benefit massively if the player is one day sold to another club for a sizeable fee.

The fact that Gilmour is now getting starts for Chelsea at the age of just 18 shows how highly they rate him.

The teenager is a product of the Rangers youth development system.

However, he never made an appearance for the Gers first-team and instead joined Chelsea in 2017 as a youth player.

Gilmour has represented Scotland at youth level from U15 to U21. Whilst he has not yet represented the senior side, there is no doubt that he will soon do so.

Along with Kieran Tierney of Arsenal, Gilmour raises hopes that the future of Scottish football may be bright.

The Scots have not qualified for a World Cup since 1998 and that is something which they will be aiming to change in the near future as Tierney and Gilmour become more mature.
