Liverpool fullback Robertson: Gilmour can earn as many Scotland caps as he wants

Scotland captain Andrew Robertson heaped praise on Billy Gilmour after the Chelsea midfielder's best afield performance for their draw with Euro 2020 rivals England.

Gilmour was among Scotland's most impressive performers as they deservedly held fancied England to a goalless draw to keep their hopes of qualifying for the last 16 alive ahead of a key showdown with Croatia at Hampden Park on Tuesday night.

Liverpool fullback Robertson said, “I spoke to him in the hotel today and I just looked at him, to be fair to Billy nothing fazes him and that is why I believe he can have as many Scotland caps as he wants.

“He has got a huge future ahead of him, but the here and now is pretty good as well."
