British & Irish Lion Stuart Hogg insists it was an easy decision to pen a new deal with Glasgow Warriors that will keep him at the club until at least 2019.

At the age of only 24, Hogg has already racked up a star-studded CV that saw him become the youngest member of the historic 2013 Lions Tour to Australia.

In addition to that Hogg has already won 45 caps for his country, the Guinness PRO12 title in 2015 and the RBS 6 Nations player of the Championship earlier this year.

And after inking a new deal at Scotstoun, the full-back – who is hoping to challenge for a berth on the 2017 Lions Tour to New Zealand – cannot wait to find out what the future holds. 

“Glasgow Warriors is such a big part of my life – I love this club,” he told the Warriors website. 

"I've played for the Warriors for five years and it was an easy decision to sign for another two seasons.

"My wife enjoys living in Glasgow and with a young boy and another baby on the way there is nowhere else I'd rather be.

"There is still a lot of rugby to be played this season and then next season I'm looking forward to working with Dave Rennie when he takes over.

"It means a lot to me that the club and Scottish Rugby want me to stay and I'm very happy that I'm going to be continuing my career in Scotland."

 And Glasgow Warriors head coach and former Lion Gregor Townsend was equally excited about the new deal signed by his star back.

“This is excellent news for Glasgow Warriors and Scottish Rugby,” he added.

“Stuart works extremely hard in training every day to improve himself and he gets real joy from playing the game.

“He is entering the best years of his career, as he is in great physical shape and he has become one of our most experienced players.

“The fact he wants to continue to play his rugby in Scotland is a massive boost for the development of the club and it's exciting for our supporters.

“I firmly believe that we can compete with the best teams in Europe and having Stuart on board for another two seasons will certainly help.”
