Back-rower John Barclay will leave Glasgow Warriors at the end of the current season.

The 26-year-old open-side flanker, who has 41 Scotland caps, has made 146 appearances for the Warriors.

He has been with the club since 2004, making his debut as a substitute against the Borders in November of that year.

"The club has been a huge part of my life since I turned professional and I've learnt a lot from the coaches and players that I've worked with at the Warriors," said Barclay.

"I'd like to thank everyone associated with the club for their support over the last nine years and I'm looking forward to being involved in some big games between now and the end of the season."

Glasgow Warriors head coach, Gregor Townsend said: "John has been a fantastic player for the club and we would like to wish him all the best for the future.

"He will be with us until the end of the season and is now back to full match fitness following his recent hamstring injury. It is great to be able to call on a player of his ability and experience for what could be some of the most important games in the club's history."
