Jonny Gray extends Warriors stay

Glasgow Warriors and Scottish Rugby have been handed a big boost today after Jonny Gray decided to remain at Scotstoun until at least May 2018.

The higly-rated lock, 21, follows in the footstep of fly-half Finn Russell who also penned a three-year deal with the Warriors last week.

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.

“It’s great to see Finn (Russell) signing as well and there is a lot of talent at the club and it’s great to be a part of it.

“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.

“I used to go and watch my brother playing at Firhill and it’s incredible to see the crowds growing since we moved to Scotstoun. The fans are really passionate and they make it a very special place to play.”

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.

“He works very hard and has made the breakthrough for club and country over the last couple of years.

“Following the news that Finn (Russell) signed last week for the same length of time, this is another big boost for Scottish rugby.

“We’d like to thank Scottish Rugby for their continued investment in our squad.”
