Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has warned former Rangers wonderkid Billy Gilmour that his move to Chelsea might backfire.
Rangers lost the services of a major target after Billy Gilmoure decided to join Chelsea last month and the Gers could well bemoan the loss of a potential future superstar.
That said, promising young players do not always make it big at top clubs and Celtic chief Peter Lawwell has warned Gilmoure that his switch to Chelsea could well end up backfiring, citing the failure of ex-Hoops starlet Islam Feruz at Stamford Bridge not too long ago.
“If you go somewhere else too early – and we saw this with the likes of Islam Feruz, maybe we’ll see it with Billy Gilmour – it is a big risk,” Lawwell said to The GET.
“The financial attraction is there, you can’t ignore that, but the right advice, unquestionably is to stay here and if it was my own son that is the same advice that I would be dispensing.”
