Scotland winger Sean Lamont extends Glasgow Warriors deal

Scotland winger Sean Lamont has committed himself to Glasgow for another season.

The 35-year-old, who has 104 international caps, has signed a contract extension to prolong his second spell with Warriors.

Lamont, who has scored 27 tries in 98 appearances for Glasgow, said: "I feel I've still got more to give and I'm enjoying being part of a winning team. I want to keep on playing and I'm glad I get to extend my time at a club which I really enjoy representing."

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend added: "Sean is a great role model of how to look after yourself physically and play at a consistently high level throughout a season.

"He's always said he'd like to keep on playing which is great, as the desire to keep improving and enthusiasm to play the game are vital components of performing well.

"He's shown that his motivation levels are just as high as ever and his rugby ability is clear for all to see.

"His influence around the group is a strong one as other players look up to him for what he's achieved in the game and what he's still delivering on the pitch.

"We're delighted to be able to have him with us for another season."
