CHELSEA'S deal to sign Billy Gilmour was one of the reasons they were hit with a one-year transfer ban – but fans reckon it was worth it after his display against Liverpool.
The Blues were slapped with a one-year transfer embargo last year after being found guilty of “at least 29 breaches” of regulations regarding the signing of minors.
Fifa then released documents that showed a total of 150 breaches involving 71 players.
The Blues eventually had the ban reduced by six months and were able to sign new players in January.
Now it has been revealed young midfield star Gilmour, 18, was one of the deals that saw Chelsea slapped with the ban in the first place following his 2017 move from Rangers.
But supporters reckon Gilmour is worth the punishment after his sensational performance against Liverpool.
The Scottish teenager was absolutely inspired in the 2-0 win in the FA Cup fifth-round clash, deservedly winning Man of the Match.
