After announcing a raft of signings over the past few weeks, Glasgow have now announced a number of players who are leaving the club.

Locks Rob Harley, Kiran McDonald and Hamish Bain, props Tom Lambert and Ewan McQuillin, hooker Grant Stewart and centre Robbie Fergusson are all set to leave, joining Murray McCallum, who signed for Worcester Warriors, Nick Grigg, who moved to Red Hurricanes Osaka in Japan, and Pete Horne, who announced his retirement earlier in the season to pursue a coaching career.

Lambert is set to depart to pursue a playing opportunity overseas after an ankle injury sustained in October left him short of playing time this season, while Fergusson, a Scotland sevens international, is ending his third spell at the club.

Hooker Stewart has also struggled for playing time this season, having made 47 appearances for the club overall and scored nine tries.

Meanwhile, Harley, scorer of the opening try in the 2015 Guinness PRO12 Final victory over Munster, leaves having made 264 appearances, as well as having become the first player to reach 50 appearances for the club in the Heineken Champions Cup and a two-time recipient of the McCrea Financial Services Player of the Season award.

“Each player leaving has applied themselves, worked hard and been passionate about playing for Glasgow Warriors,” said head coach Danny Wilson.

“We wish our leavers all the best and would like to thank them for what they have done as Warriors – their contributions both on and off the field cannot be underestimated.

“We’re looking forward to finishing the season together and, when the time is right, celebrating all they have given to the jersey.”
