Billy Gilmour handed Norwich lifeline as Daniel Farke departure paves way for Chelsea loanee

The Scotland international has struggled for game time under the manager since joining on loan from Chelsea.

Billy Gilmour may have landed a second chance at Norwich after Daniel Farke departed the club.

The Scotland international has struggled for game time under the manager since joining on loan from Chelsea.

Gilmour hasn’t made an appearance for the Canaries since September with questions raised as to whether he may be recalled from his loan.

The 20-year-old made the temporary switch in a bid to get more game time, but it hasn’t materialised and concerns have been raised about his development.

But he may be able to force his way into the side under the club’s next manager after Farke left today, despite beating Brentford 2-1.

Farke leaves Carrow Road having overseen 208 games at the helm across a four-and-a-half-year spell.

It remains to be seen whether the development changes the predicament of Gilmour, who has been called up by Scotland for their upcoming matches against Moldova and Denmark.

Earlier this week, Barry Ferguson said Gilmour’s lack of game time at Norwich was “worrying” and predicted Steven Gerrard would be interested in the midfielder.

Asked if he could see Rangers moving for him in the January window, Ferguson said: “Yeah, I don’t see why not.

“I’m sure Rangers would be interested in him.

It is worrying. You know what I think of Billy Gilmour – I think he’s a fantastic young footballer.”
