Ruaridh Jackson has revealed his delight after committing himself to Glasgow Warriors until June 2020.

The Scotland international returned to Glasgow for his second stint in 2017, having started his senior career at Scotstoun, and he will continue his association with the club, subject to a medical.

Jackson has made over 150 appearances during his two spells with Warriors and was named as joint winner of the 2017-18 Player's Player of the Season award.

The versatile back is hoping to repay the club's faith by helping them to end the season in a positive fashion.

They have already sealed their place in the Pro14 play-offs and will face Munster in the quarter-finals next month.

Jackson said: "I love this club and I'm very happy to have extended my stay here.

"I'm really enjoying my rugby just now and coming back to the club two years ago was a very good decision.

"I'm looking forward to continuing to run out at Scotstoun in front of our passionate supporters and hopefully we can have a successful end to the season."
