Glasgow Warriors have received another boost with the news Jonny Gray has signed a new contract that will keep him at Scotstoun until at least May 2018.

Confirmation of the deal comes less than a week after the PRO12 champions tied down fly-half Finn Russell to a similar deal.

Gray captained Glasgow for the first time during their title-winning season and went on to play four of Scotland's five Rugby World Cup matches.

He said: "I'm very happy to be staying at Glasgow. It's my home club and I'm just glad I've had the opportunity to sign. 

"It's been a a fantastic few years development for me. When I was younger I always had the ambition to play for Glasgow and Scotland and playing in a Rugby World Cup has been a fantastic experience.

"Everyone works very hard and that just makes you want to improve as a player and improve the team as well. To have the opportunity to work with the coaches and players at the Warriors is fantastic.

"Scotstoun is a fun place to be and everyone works hard for each other and the culture is great."

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend added: "Jonny has made a huge contribution over the last couple of seasons and it's great news that he's staying with us for another three years."
