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.
