Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has heaped the highest of praise on Ardrossan's Billy Gilmour.

During his side's pre-match press conference ahead of their opening league match against Norwich City, Klopp claimed Gilmour was one of the best Scottish players of "the last 50 years".

Gilmour joined Norwich on loan from Chelsea this summer and joined Klopp's fellow countryman Daniel Farke at Carrow Road.

Speaking at the conference, Klopp said: "I know how good they [Norwich] are and how great a job Daniel Farke is doing.

"Billy Gilmour is probably one of the biggest Scottish talents for the last 50 years. 

"So it's exciting what they're doing and we have to be absolutely spot on."

Gilmour will be hoping to make his first Premier League start for The Canaries tomorrow when Norwich City host Liverpool, with the match kicking off at 5.30pm.
