The 15-year-old featured in the youth team game against rivals Celtic and made an impressive impact.

Gilmour provided an assist for the Gers with a wondrous pass which helped bring his side level, but Celtic went on to record a 2-1 win with Jack Aitchison scoring the winner.

Gilmour's future remains unresolved and has been the source of constant speculation over the past few weeks, with The Mail reporting he is likely to sign with Chelsea.

Rangers have not given up hope of persuading him to stay, and continue to select him. Watching him play last night in a game broadcast live on Youtube, many fans got a look at what all the fuss is about for the very first time.

Gilmour lived up to the hype, with some supporters remarking that his delivery is already better than that of the first team players.

New boss Pedro Caixinha has shown he is ready to give chances to young players already, and Gilmour's performance will keep him in the reckoning in the future if he stays at Ibrox.

Here is a look at how fans reacted to his performance...
