Glasgow Warriors centre Graeme Morrison has announced his retirement from professional rugby on medical grounds.

Morrison has been having ongoing knee problems for the past few years and made the decision following Glasgow Warriors' defeat to Leinster in the RaboDirect PRO12 play-off's.

The 30-year-old, who has 35 caps for Scotland, made 176 appearances for the Warriors since joining the club in 2003 scoring 110 points during his ten-year spell.

Morrison said: "I'm sad to be leaving the Warriors but I've made the decision after receiving medical advice.

"My knee has been causing me problems for some time now and after serious consideration following the play-off, I've decided it's the right time for me to stop playing professional rugby as I am not able to continue playing at that level.

"I've had an amazing ten years in Glasgow and I've really enjoyed working with all the players and coaches. It's very exciting to see so many talented guys coming through and there is no doubt the club has a very bright future."

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend added: "Graeme has been a fantastic servant for the club and has been extremely loyal by staying here for his whole professional career.

"He is a true professional and will be missed by everyone at the club. We wish him all the best with whatever career path he chooses and he will always be welcome at Scotstoun."
