Billy Gilmour injury update as star hands Scotland & Norwich boost

BILLY GILMOUR has handed Scotland and Norwich City a boost by returning to training following an ankle injury.

Norwich, who have the player on loan from Chelsea, posted a video on Twitter showing the 20-year-old back on the grass at the club’s Colney base.

The midfielder, who had returned to his parent club for treatment, has not featured for the Canaries since the December 28 loss at Crystal Palace after suffering the injury in training, with Gilmour so far missing four games for Dean Smith’s side.

However, the former Rangers trainee could make his comeback in next Saturday’s FA Cup trip to Wolves.

His return would also come as a huge boost to national team manager Steve Clarke, who would be keen for the playmaker to have competitive game time under his belt ahead of March’s crucial World Cup play-off semi-final against Ukraine.

Smith said: “Billy [Gilmour], [Mathias] Normann, [Lukas] Rupp and [Andrew] Omobamidele should all be back, I am hoping, for the next game against Wolves.

“We have got a squad that is becoming healthier by the minute.”

Gilmour has become a mainstay for Scotland, starting the last eight games he has been available for, with six of those games ending in victory for Clarke’s side.
