It’s a strange time to be a Scotland fan, there’s still an outside chance of qualifying for a major tournament and a youngster looks like one of the best players for a huge team in the Premier League.
Billy Gilmour has been spoken about for a while as a tremendous talent, and he’s impressed every time he’s played for Chelsea. That means it was inevitable that questions would be asked about a full Scotland call up.
Ally McCoist offered this opinion as part of his punditry for BT Sport:
Should Billy Gilmour go straight into the Scotland squad after his performance last night? ?
“Immediately. Do not pass go and collect £200. Get him in the squad immediately.”
“All other countries put them in at 18/19. Get him in!”

Usually you would get a more reluctant or less emphatic response, but it shows the faith that McCoist has in his ability.
There’s a big Euro 2020 play off with Israel coming up, and it would be great to see him play to see just how good he is.
