Glasgow Warriors have announced the signing of scrum-half Murray McConnell, who will join them on a one-year contract from next season.

Glasgow Warriors have announced the signing of scrum-half and former Elite Development player Murray McConnell on a deal from 2014/15.

McConnell made two appearances for the club between 2010 and 2013 in the PRO12 before starring for Ayr in the RBS Premiership this year.

"I'm looking forward to returning to Scotstoun as a professional player, after being part of the Elite Development Programme last season," he said.

"Niko (Matawalu) and Henry (Pyrgos) are two very good scrum-halves and I know I can learn a lot from them.

"I'm ambitious and I want to play at as high a level as possible and I'll get that opportunity at Scotstoun. It's an exciting time to be re-joining the club," he added, speaking to GlasgowWarriors.org.

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "Murray has been training with us this season so he'll fit straight in when he joins us on a full-time basis in the summer.

"He's had a very good season with Ayr and we've been following his progress closely. He'll be an excellent addition to our squad."
