Glasgow's promising centre Mark Bennett has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The 20-year-old started his professional career with the Warriors before moving to French giants Clermont Auvergne.

He re-joined Glasgow in November 2012 and broke into the Scotland squad for the current autumn internationals.

He has played 11 times for the club in the RaboDirect PRO12 and recently made his Heineken Cup debut against Toulon.

He told the club's website: "Since returning to Glasgow last year I've only ever wanted to stay here.

"I've enjoyed getting more game time this season and it was a real honour to be called up to the Scotland squad. Like all players I want to win things and I feel I have a real opportunity to do that in Glasgow."

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "This is excellent news for the club. Mark has started at centre in seven games so far this season and he's continually developing.

"He has a determination to learn and improve so there is a lot more to come from him in the future."
