Scotland and British and Irish Lions second-rower Richie Gray says he is targeting great things in the future after committing his future to Scotstoun for another year.

The 32-year-old has made 77 appearances with the Warriors in two spells at the club, having been re-signed by Danny Wilson in 2020.

Speaking after signing Gray said: “This club means a lot to me – it’s where I started my professional rugby journey and it’s an environment that makes it a real pleasure to come into training every day and go to work.

“I’ve really enjoyed my rugby since returning to Glasgow, and to be able to continue to pull on the Glasgow jersey is a real privilege.

“We’ve got a talented group of players at Scotstoun and I truly believe this squad is capable of some great things in the near future.”

Head coach Danny Wilson added: “Richie’s form has been excellent ever since he returned to Glasgow.

“Not only has his lineout work been top-class, but he’s contributed hugely around the field with a very high work rate with and without the ball.

“He brings a wealth of experience to our squad and provides a great role model for our young group of forwards in the playing group. He’s a great professional and we look forward to continuing to work closely together.”
