Scotland prop Euan Murray has re-joined Glasgow Warriors on a one-year contract.

The 33-year-old tight-head had a four-year spell with the club from 2003 after progressing through the Glasgow Hawks and Scottish under-age ranks.

Murray has since had stints with Northampton Saints, Newcastle Falcons, Agen and Worcester Warriors, and he has spoken of his delight at returning to his hometown club.

"I'm grateful to Glasgow for the opportunity to continue my career with a club that has always meant a lot to me,” said Murray, who has won 59 caps for Scotland.

"I am passionate about playing again for Glasgow though you only need to look at some of the talent that is at the club to understand that a lot of hard work will be necessary to take the field at Scotstoun.”

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said:: "It's great to welcome Euan back to Glasgow.

"He has played at the highest level of the game over the past decade and brings with him considerable experience from his time in England and France.

"He is a proven scrummager at Test level and finished the season in great form. His tackling ability is also something that we are keen to see in a Warriors jersey. 

"Euan has always been very proud of his Glasgow roots and I look forward to the contribution he can make to our pack and the positive influence he can have on some of our younger players.”
