Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour has stated that he “sometimes” wears a certain Liverpool shirt when he is at home playing football in the garden.
Gilmour played against Liverpool in the FA Cup before the pandemic suspended football. He swapped shirts with Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson at the end of the game.
With that being the case, Gilmour “sometimes” wears that particular shirt at home.
Gilmour told Chelsea’s official website: “It was probably Andy Robertson’s Liverpool shirt when I swapped with him after the recent FA Cup game. I wear that sometimes at the moment, just out in the garden playing football.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Liverpool’s left-back is currently the captain of Scotland. Gilmour is Scottish, which is arguably the key reason why he swapped shirts with Robertson.
I won’t lie, it would be strange to hear that a Liverpool player sometimes wears a Chelsea shirt at home.
But, Gilmour is young and he clearly looks up to Robertson. That is arguably the reason why he sometimes wears the kit. There is nothing more to it in my opinion.
Gilmour, 18, is a player that I wouldn’t mind seeing Liverpool sign. Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane had plenty of good things to say about Gilmour back in March.
Keane has stated that Gilmour has looked like a “world-class player” at certain times. This is praise coming from a player that has won seven league titles. Keane’s opinion is worth listening to.
Keane’s comments highlight what a talent Gilmour is, which is why I wouldn’t mind seeing Liverpool sign him.
But, there have been no reports to suggest that the Reds are in for him. Perhaps Robertson could have a word to Reds boss Jurgen Klopp about signing Gilmour.
