Gilmour reveals admiration for former barca stars

Billy Gilmour has opened up about his admiration for the likes of Iniesta, Xavi and Fabregas while he was young.

"When I was real young I used to watch [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi, as everyone did, but when I started analysing my game more and seeing who I would progress and hope to be like, it was more like [Andres] Iniesta, Xavi, [Cesc] Fabregas, all them type of players," Gilmour told skysports.

"It was just something I loved watching, seeing how they pass the ball, receive the ball and everything was sharp.

"Busquets as well, when you watch Barcelona, you watch Busquets individually and everything happens around him. 

But when you watch Barcelona, you don't really see Busquets. 

"But that's the kind of player I've always looked up to and just wanted to be that kind of player to get on the ball and make things happen."

Also he also said he was singled out of praise by Scotland Captain Andy Robertson after his MOTM display in a 2-0 FA Cup win over Liverpool.

"He came up to me after the game and he was just saying 'Well done, you played really well, keep doing it and hopefully see you soon in the first-team'," he said. 

"So that was great to hear that from the captain of my country."
