'It’s about making sure the pathway is right for him': Lampard addresses Gilmour loan rumours

“I thought Billy was outstanding on his return, I felt very comfortable with him coming back in, he’s trained so well, done his rehab and he deserved his chance tonight,” Frank Lampard told the media after Chelsea and Krasnodar played out a 1-1 draw (via Chelsea FC).

“So I expect to see more of the same from Billy as he gets stronger now he is past his injury.

Lampard added: "The way he played today and how he trains, I see him growing with us. He’s going to be a Chelsea player so it’s just about making sure the pathway is right for him. He made that pathway right last season and then got injured at the wrong time but playing like he did today, he’s got a lot to offer us."

Lampard's assessment of Gilmour's performance is spot-on, but the second part of his quote is a little open to interpretation. In big games and when all of our midfielders are fit, it is a little hard to see Gilmour getting too much playing time.

Therefore, a loan deal for him in January might be a good option for the 19-year-old. Reportedly, Rangers are interested in signing the talented midfielder.
