BBC reveals the mega-money Finn Russell will be on at Racing 92

Scottish Rugby could not compete with the “superstar money” on offer in France for Finn Russell, says chief executive Mark Dodson.

“Good luck to him, he’s a super player,” Dodson told BBC Scotland.

“There’s no recriminations from us. He’s been great value. He’s a superstar so let him go and earn superstar money.

“We put a big number on the table, as big as we could go, and we weren’t anywhere remotely close.

“We have to say best wishes to him, let’s hope he does a great job out there.”


BBC Sport’s Tom English then revealed that the playmaker would join the Parisians on a deal believed to be worth around £700,000-per-season.

The 25-year-old earned his 31st cap in Saturday’s narrow loss to New Zealand at Murrayfield and has been with Glasgow for five years, helping them win the Pro12 title in 2015.
