Norwich boss Smith hails 'vital' Gilmour for victory over Southampton

Norwich City boss Dean Smith was delighted with the performance of on-loan Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour for victory over Southampton.

On Friday night Gilmour could be found at Norwich's training ground watching their Under-23s draw 1-1 with Charlton. Come Saturday, he was putting in a man-of-the-match performance at Carrow Road.

"He's a terrific player," Smith said. "But better than that is his attitude and character. He loves football, and wants to be out there all the time.

"He was all over the pitch trying to drive the players on.

"He's a wonderful character and wonderful player. He will be vital for us. When you have a player of that talent on loan we want to get the best out of him."
