Richie Gray Quotes of the week

Gray is only in his second year as a professional, but the 20-year-old has already made a big impression.

He earned a call-up to the Scotland training squad ahead of the autumn internationals before going on to play in the A team victory over Tonga.

And Gray, a powerful force in the lineout, is delighted to have committed his future to the Warriors.

He said: "I'm Glasgow born-and-bred and have watched the Warriors since I was a little boy.

"It's been an ambition of mine to be involved with the club for a long time so I'm delighted to have extended my contract.

Star

"I feel Glasgow have the ability to win the Magners League and do well in the Heineken Cup in the coming years and I want to be part of the team that sees Glasgow flourish."

Warriors head coach Sean Lineen has no doubt Gray can build on his early success.

He said: "His attitude is outstanding and the guy is going to be a real star and I'm glad he's going to achieve that with Glasgow.

"He's a real talent and, with the way Glasgow are going at the moment, it's fantastic to have young, hungry players who just want to play rugby."
