Glasgow fly-half Duncan Weir broke his leg in Friday night's victory over the Ospreys.

The Scotland international, 21, underwent surgery on his right fibula over the weekend and has now been released from hospital.

Head coach Gregor Townsend had already ruled Weir out of Glasgow's RaboDirect Pro12 play-off campaign and predicted he would miss the start of next season too.

Townsend said: "We're all gutted for Duncan. He's had a really good season and he'll be disappointed to miss the final few games.

"He's now on the road to recovery and we wish him all the best for his rehabilitation."

Weir added: "I'd like to thank everyone for their messages of support over the weekend. My phone has not stopped and it's really helped me over the last couple of days."
