Richie Gray is returning to the Glasgow Warriors after agreeing a two year deal to re-sign with the club where he began his professional career.

The 30-year-old Scotland and British Lions second-rower made his Glasgow debut back in 2009 before enjoying stints at Sale, Castres and most recently Toulouse.

Gray played 51 times for Toulouse and played a key part in Les Rouge et Noir's successes last season, helping the French side to a Heineken Champions Cup semi-final and the Top14 title.

He has also excelled on the international stage throughout his career, winning 55 caps for Scotland since his debut in 2010.

Gray, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be coming back to Glasgow. It’s great to be bringing my family back home, and also to come back to the club where it all began for me. It’s certainly something very exciting for me.
“I can’t wait to come back. We were still at Firhill when I left, and the club has obviously made big moves forward since then. Scotstoun is a great place to play rugby – it’s packed every week and I can’t wait to be a part of that.”
