Ally McCoist believes Mason Mount and Billy Gilmour may see playing time limited under new Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.
He told Sky Sports: “With the greatest of respect, if we sit here and think that Thomas Tuchel will say he’s going to give Billy Gilmour a chance as he deserves an opportunity and he’ll give Mason Mount a couple of games, that’s not happening.
“They’ll get a game if Thomas Tuchel thinks they’ll strengthen the Chelsea side, make them stronger and win games.
“In my opinion, he’ll not be giving youth an opportunity, thinking that they’ll give Billy a couple of games to get going.
“It’s not going to happen because you see what happens at the vast majority of clubs, not just Chelsea, you’ve got to get results. you’ve got to win games of football.
“I’ll be interested to see what he does with their younger players in their next couple of games.”
