CHELSEA and Scotland wonderkid Billy Gilmour once revealed he wears a LIVERPOOL shirt at home.
The 20-year-old burst on to the Stamford Bridge scene and his form earned him a call-up for his country at Euro 2020.
He was the star man as Scotland held England to a goalless draw at Wembley last week but he has now been ruled out of today's crunch must-win Group D clash with Croatia after testing positive for Covid-19.
It is a bitter blow for the ace and his ever-growing legion of supporters – although Chelsea fans might not be too happy hearing he frequently wore a Liverpool shirt during lockdown last year.
When asked if he wears a jersey of another team, the teenager told the Chelsea website in 2020: "It was probably Andy Robertson’s Liverpool shirt when I swapped with him after the recent FA Cup game.
"I wear that sometimes at the moment, just out in the garden playing football."
It won't be the first time the footballer has got stick for his clothing of choice.
SunSport reported how Gilmour revealed he was the butt of jokes after he modelled for Burberry – but he has insisted he saw the funny side after seeing his face on billboards.
Speaking to Jamie Redknapp on the Sky Football Show about how it came about, he said: "My agent phoned and he was just saying, 'I got a phone call from Burberry and they were asking if you'd like to do modelling?' So my dad phoned me and asked what I'd think doing modelling. I'm giving it a bit saying 'of course' and bantering with him.
"I then got a phone call from my agent saying, 'we're meeting up tomorrow with Burberry'. I said, 'Why's that?' and he said 'You're modelling for them, did your dad not say?'

"I said, 'I thought he was kidding on! I ended up doing a couple of modelling shoots for Burberry! It was good, something different, but I got a bit of stick.
"It's funny, I was going home one of the times in Heathrow or Gatwick airport and the Burberry shop is there. I was walking to my flight and I come up on the billboard!
"I just took a picture of it and sent it to my dad and started laughing. It was brilliant."
