Gabriel Ascarate Arg v Ita 2013

Heading home: Gabriel Ascarate

Argentine centre Gabriel Ascarate has left Glasgow Warriors and returned to his native Argentina to recover from a neck injury.

The 25-year-old, who joined the club on a one-year deal in July, has been told that he will be unable to play for six months and so the club has allowed him to return home.

"We're really disappointed for Gabriel that he's had to leave the club early," said head coach Gregor Townsend.

"He fitted in really well and would have played a big role in the second half of the season.

"Although he will not require surgery, he has been advised not to take any contact for six months, so we agreed to release him from his contract early to allow him to return home.

"We'd like to thank Gabriel for his contribution to the club during his time here and we wish him well for the future."
