Andy Robertson believes Scotland teammate Billy Gilmour has a "huge future" after the midfielder starred in the Euro 2020 draw against England at Wembley.
Resolute Scotland frustrated the Three Lions and secured a deserved first point in the Group D encounter.
Chelsea youngster Gilmour was handed his first senior international start on the big occasion and performed excellently in the heart of midfield.
Gilmour justified his inclusion as helped negate England's threat in a hearty showing.
And the 20-year-old earned the man of the match award for his impressive performance at Wembley.
Liverpool full-back Robertson was asked about the level of Gilmour's efforts after the Scots held out for an important 0-0 draw.
Andy Robertson has high hopes for Scotland teammate Billy Gilmour
"Right up there," he told ITV.
"I spoke to him in hotel today and just looked at him and to be fair to Billy nothing fazes him.
"That’s why I believe he can have as many caps as he wants for Scotland.
"He’s got a huge future ahead but the here and now is pretty good as well.

"Today him and Callum McGregor, both of them in the holding role, were magnificent."
Scotland boss Steve Clarke was praised for Gilmour's inclusion after the game, and had no doubt about the temperament of his young midfielder.
"We knew before we put him in he can play," Clarke added.
"It’s just getting the right moment, tonight was his big moment and he took it and no one was surprised by it, certainly not in our camp."
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard handed Gilmour his first-team Blues debut in 2019 and has always thought very highly of the young starlet.

Lampard is convinced Gilmour can become a top talent, even noting similarities between the youngster and Manchester United great Paul Scholes.
"Paul Scholes is obviously one of the greatest midfield players I’ve played against in the Premier League," he told Sky Sports in April 2020.
"He would always pick the right pass, he had incredible range.

"If you did try and jump from midfield and get to him and get close to him he’d just play it around the corner because he knew you were coming.
"Billy has shown early signs of that kind of ability.
"I’m not comparing him to Scholesy, no way at all, but in terms of those basics that you mentioned, then Billy certainly has them and that’s a great platform to build hopefully a fantastic career."
