Glasgow Warriors have confirmed this evening that fly-half Finn Russell will leave the club at the end of the season.
The 25-year-old’s performances for both club and country have attracted attention from a number of clubs across Europe and he has been offered a once in a lifetime opportunity.
It has not been confirmed but he will likely join Racing 92 as a replacement for Dan Carter.
Finn Russell said: “I’ve really enjoyed my five years at Glasgow Warriors.
“I would like to thank every player, coach and member of the backroom staff for making it so special.
“During my time at the club I’ve really developed as a player and I’ve been called up to the Scotland and British & Irish Lions squads.
“I’ve shared so many fantastic moments with people who are now friends for life and to do it in front of the amazing Glasgow Warriors supporters at Scotstoun has been a dream come true.
“I’ve always wanted to experience as much as I can during what is a short rugby career. It was obviously a difficult decision to leave Glasgow, but I have the opportunity to take myself out of my comfort zone and experience a new culture and type of rugby.
“However, I am fully focussed on Glasgow Warriors and will do everything I can to make my final season at Scotstoun a successful one.”
