Glasgow and Scotland forward Adam Ashe will be out for the rest of the year after undergoing hip surgery.

The 23-year-old, who has eight Scotland caps, has been recovering from a foot injury suffered in the final game of last season, but a hip problem has continued to cause trouble.

A Warriors statement read: " Adam Ashe has had an operation on an underlying hip injury, while recovering from a foot injury sustained against Connacht in the Guinness PRO12 Play-Off last season.

"The backrower has commenced his rehab programme and is expected to be unavailable for the remainder of the calendar year."

Glasgow head coach Gregor Townsend said: "We're all disappointed for Adam that he's going to be out for a longer period of time following a hip operation, but we wish him all the best with his recovery."
