Allan Campbell has said that Billy Gilmour has been of great inspiration.
“He’s a great wee player,” said Campbell, who partnered Gilmour at the heart of Scot Gemmill’s midfield for Thursday’s 2-0 win over San Marino in Paisley.
“I’ve known Billy for a couple of years now as he’s been in a few of the camps.
“It’s great to get the chance to play with him and I was obviously buzzing for him when he came on for Chelsea last weekend. Hopefully he can keep shining and kicking on.
“He’s like any other boy. He’s humble off the park but when he goes out there, he always shows his talent.
“In training he works hard but you can see the ability he has a mile off. He’s always doing tricks and some of the stuff he does is brilliant.
“I’m glad he’s getting the opportunity with his club to play at such a high level.
“I know a lot of the boys here look at him and think if he’s getting a chance at first-team level then we can do the same if we keep our heads down and work hard.”
