British & Irish Lions prop Ryan Grant has been recalled to the Scotland squad for the Six Nations after being acquitted of an assault charge.

Scotland coach Vern Cotter excluded the Glasgow Warriors prop while the case went to court but has immediately recalled him now it has been dropped.

In a brief statement, Scotland chiefs confirmed: "Glasgow Warriors loose-head prop Ryan Grant has been added to the Scotland squad for the forthcoming RBS 6 Nations."

19-cap Grant will rejoin the Scotland squad at Murrayfield on Monday as preparations for Saturday's championship opener against France in Paris are stepped up. French coach Philippe Saint-André added eight players to his squad on Sunday.

Grant's Glasgow and Scotland team-mate Ryan Wilson remains out of the squad and faces a disciplinary hearing next week after he was convicted of a double assault. The flanker was suspended by the Scottish Rugby Union last week after being convicted of assaulting two men, including fellow rugby player Ally Maclay, during a Halloween night out in October 2013.
