Gregor Townsend has signed a new contract with the Glasgow Warriors keeping him at the club until 2017.

Townsend, who won 82 caps for Scotland, guided Glasgow to the Guinness PRO12 title last season and the news of his decision to recommit will come as a huge boost to the club.

"I'm very excited to be able to continue my role with the Warriors," Townsend said. "Being offered the job in 2012 was a huge honour and I've thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone at the club.

"The investment from Scottish Rugby, both in the team and facilities at Scotstoun, have played a vital role in our success and I firmly believe that there is a lot more to come from this group of players - their work ethic and desire to improve has me very optimistic about the future."

Scottish Rugby CEO Mark Dodson added: "We are delighted to have retained Gregor's services up to the end of the 2017 season. After Glasgow Warriors became the first Scottish team in the professional era to win a major trophy it was only natural Gregor's talents would be of interest to other clubs.

"We maintain a constant dialogue with our coaches and believe he remains the right person to take the Warriors forward and consolidate their recent success. He has created a consistent winning culture at Scotsoun and that is benefitting both the club and the players he works with."
