Brian Thomas Gilmour (born 8 May 1987 in Irvine, North Ayrshire) is a Scottish footballer. He is a midfielder who currently plays for Ayr United.

He has represented his country from under-13 to under-21 levels playing in the European Under-19s final and represented Scotland under-20 at Fifa World Cup in Canada.

Club career[edit]

Rangers and Clyde[edit]

Gilmour began his career with Rangers. However, he did not make a first-team appearance for the club and on 9 February 2007 he signed for First Division side Clyde. He made his debut the following day in a 1–0 defeat to Livingston at the Broadwood Stadium. His first goal came on 17 March in a 2–2 draw with Ross County at Victoria Park. He made a total of 13 appearances, scoring one goal in 2006–07, his only season with the Bully Wee.

Queen of the South[edit]

Gilmour signed for fellow First Division side Queen of the South in July 2007, making his debut on 4 August in a 3–3 draw with St Johnstone at Palmerston Park. His first goal came on 19 April 2008 in a 1–0 home win over Dundee. He made a total of 27 appearances for Queens, before leaving in May 2008. 2007/08 was his only season with Queens with the majority of his appearances coming in the first half of the season. He was part of the squad that reached the 2008 Scottish Cup Final and qualified for the UEFA Cup for the following season.[2]

FC Haka[edit]

Gilmour signed an 18-month contract with Finnish Veikkausliiga side FC Haka in 2008. Shortly after joining in August 2008 he played in Haka's 2008–09 UEFA Cup Second qualifying round defeat to Danish side Brøndby at their Brøndby Stadium.[2] He mutually terminated his contract with FC Haka in May 2009.[3] He played a total of seven league games for Haka.

Playing in the UEFA Cup against Brondby so soon after joining Haka was a good experience. I was playing well then dropped out the picture. The fans had taken to me and couldn't understand why I wasn't playing and thought I was injured. Outside agents benefited from the move more than me. I'll never know the details but there were underlying reasons why I didn't play."

— Gilmour on his time in Finland[3]

In September 2009 he had a trial with English Championship club Blackpool managed by Ian Holloway.[4]

Lincoln City[edit]

Brian signed for Football League Two side Lincoln City on 27 November 2009 until the end of the season. Gilmour struggled to get into the team at first but found himself getting regular games towards the end of the season, although he was played in an unfamiliar midfield position. Gilmour was offered a new deal, however, failed to agree terms to the contract offer before Chris Sutton's deadline. Gilmour's offer was withdrawn and he left the club in July 2010.

Knattspyrnufélag Akureyrar[edit]

In July 2011 he joined Knattspyrnufélag Akureyrar[5] who play in Iceland's 1. deild karla.

Ayr United[edit]

On 12 November 2013, Gilmour signed for Ayr United on an amateur contract until January 2014, making his debut the same day against Stranraer.[6] Gilmour signed a professional contract running until May 2015 with Ayr in January 2014.[7]

International career[edit]

Gilmour was the only Rangers player to participate in the 2006 European under-19 Championship for Scotland who reached the final. Gilmour made a subs appearance in the final losing 2–1 to Spain.[2]

He was selected in the Scotland squad for the 2007 Under-20 World Cup Finals in Canada in a group along with Japan, Nigeria and Costa Rica.
