The 20-year-old was a key miss in the midfield for Steve Clarke as he self-isolated.

Gilmour has been linked with a return to Rangers on loan.

The player left Ibrox as a teenager for Chelsea and has since played 22 times for the first-team.

Manager Thomas Tuchel is keen for the player to get first-team football and is currently behind Matoe Kovacic and Jorginho in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
