Would like to see Rangers field the young lad gilmour if he is as good as likes of Man U Arsenal, Barcelona ascouts think he is the we should give him a shot worked for Everton playing Rooney and let's be honest the Scottish Football is nowhere near that standard so it could work well. There was a time when Rangers used to put their youngsters out without a second thought such as Derek Johnstone cup final and getting first team action or being in the squad I believe would fend off interest instead of going there and playing in the youth teams and wasting away like other good youngsters.

can't play until the summer at the earliest

tha is for the info question to you would u play him or protect him and do you feel it would starve off the interest of other clubs

If he is good enough play him, same goes for Burt and Thompson

Absolutely agree bluenosebear84. I am sick and tired of youngsters being ignored, first by McCoist and McDowall and now by Warburton. Surely the like of Burt, Hardie, Thompson and Walsh could have been given a chance by now? What do we do, wait until they are 30 before giving them a game? One of the greatest Scots ever to play the game was Denis Law and he was 16 when he made his senior debut! The players brought in by Warburton have largely been disappointing. O'Halloran, Garner, Crooks. Have the guts to give youth a chance! Can't be any worse.

He's only 15 and hardly big for his age. Rooney was a phenomenon, physically advanced for his age and is feeling it now.

Cee. Denis Law was a skinny, bespectacled boy!

Not being funny when messi was 17 he wasn't the biggest did have a wee bit more weight but the point here is if he good enough then he should play . I honestly believe if he is as good as all they scouts that have visited then he really must have something and let's be honest playing in Scotland ain't the greatest league in the world. Worst case scenario he doesn't play well put him back in the reserves but at least he gained valuable first team experience which gives him more determination to succeed.

If the boy gilmour is as good as we are being told we better hope he's patient and will wait for chance. He must be looking at Burt and Thomson and seeing them not getting a game and a big criticism of mine with gers over the years we've always been slow to give young guys a chance.

The boy is a standout at his age for both rangers and Scotland tho he is only 15 and built like a 15yr old school kid. I don't think he can play till he's 16 but I'd def have him in and around the first team so when he is exposed to being in the squad it's familiar.
I really hope we can keep this kid at rangers and I'd be using ex Celtic youth Feruz as perfect example. This kid may have earned good cash but he hasn't kicked a ball since he went to Chelsea and couldn't even get game time at hibs on loan.

It's the same as all the hype when John Fleck was coming through the ranks he was being called Scotland's answer to Rooney look at him now plying his trade in the English third tier. How many youngsters have made it at Ibrox I can count on one hand the money and time spent through the years at Murray park we should be miles ahead in that department.

I agree with gers 79 bout Murray Park not getting results from it. I think scotty123 point is bang on about gilmour being around the first team and even if he was starting use him is a sub in the league and play him cup games. And for everyone saying the wouldn't have Hourihane he is miles better that's What's there he would add loads to the squad and he's versatile player but would use him as central mid.

when the boy is old enough if he is good enough I start him on the cup games only unless he plays really well then league games aswell but i'd definitely play him in some capacity to make sure we don't lose him and he signs a contract when he is old enough
