"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.

"This is excellent news for Glasgow Warriors and Scottish Rugby. 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," Townsend said.
