Billy Gilmour is a Scottish-born professional football player who plays as a midfielder for Norwich City of Premier League club and the Scotland National team.

He is a former Ranger star. He has represented his country Scotland from under 15 to under 21 levels.

His father is his role model

Billy was born to his father, Billy Gilmour Sr., and his mother, Carrie Gilmour. Billy considers his father to be his role model whom he looked up to while growing up. 

Billy Gilmour Sr. served with the Royal Navy and played at a junior level for Ardrossan Winton Rovers. He was the first coach to his son and taught him everything about football.

Billy aspired to become a premier league football player from an early age and grew up watching his father play in the midfield. 

Billy Sr. was influential in shaping his son’s football career and tried his best to bring the maximum out of him, followed by criticisms and scolding until he performed well enough. 

Most of the time, there would be a long moment of silence after the constructive criticism on the way home. 

Billy confessed to hating his father for not getting easily satisfied with his efforts, but eventually, he realized what those criticisms and scolding were for.

He also credits his father for keeping him grounded.

His mother took the internet after the unveiling video went viral

His mother, Carrie Gilmour, took the internet after the unveiling video went viral. It was the short video of Billy’s unveiling as a new Norwich City player where her action showed a dig at Celtic

When she was asked to pose with the Norwich City scarf, she hesitated and refused to hold a green part, the color associated with Celtics, and was heard saying that she will be holding a little bit of yellow. 

Bill Sr. further added, saying she does not like that color.

Billy is full of life 

Billy is so full of life both on and off the pitch. He does not hold himself back from doing things he loves.

Recently after his move to Norwich City, he was seen performing Karaoke on the weekend in Norwich.

He was not a pro and had to check the lyrics quite often, but also he continued singing, not being concerned about his tone. 

Seeing his effort, the crowd could not stop themselves from giving applause. At the same time, he also confessed to looking forward to helping Norwich City compete in the premier league. 

Relationship status

Billy is currently single and does not have a girlfriend. His social media accounts show no details of his love life. 

Became a victim of aggressive stalking

In May 2023, news surfaced that claimed that a girl stalked Billy to a level that he had difficulty sleeping and had to take sleeping pills. 

The stalking started from September 10 to October 28

A Tiktoker named Orla Melissa Sloan was said to be stalking not only Billy but also Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell

Apparently, Sloan slept with Mason after meeting with him at a party at Ben's home in November 2020

They then stayed in contact for around six months before Mason broke up with her, saying the relationship was not going to progress. 

After that Sloan bombarded Mason with messages. Mason then blocked her, saying not to message him again. 

This didn't stop her, and she started buying new numbers to try to contact him. 

It is said that Sloan bought 21 different numbers and created numerous fake accounts. 

She also didn't leave his friends and family alone. She started messaging Ben and Billy

At first, Billy responded to her messages as a courtesy, but her constant messaging started making a huge impact on his life. 

Billy said he had not been able to sleep and had to take sleeping tablets. He added it has had a negative effect on his performance and professional life. 

Since he was new in town and didn't have his friends and family, he found the incident very upsetting. 

The matter was taken to the court, and Sloan was found guilty of stalking Mason and his teammates and harassing Ben at Westminster Magistrates' Court

She pleaded guilty to causing serious alarm or distress.

At an early age, Billy has become one of the exceptional players. After his outstanding performance in Euro 2020, where he represented his country Scotland and competed against England, leading to a draw, he became the highlight of the match.
