Glasgow Warriors and Scotland prop Ryan Grant has announced his retirement at the end of the 2017/18 season.
The 32-year-old has represented his country on 25 occasions, 13 of them in Rugby’s Greatest Championship, and was also a member of the 2013 British and Irish Lions squad that toured Australia.
The loosehead prop debuted for Scotland in 2012 against Australia and his last appearance came during the 2015 Rugby World Cup against the USA.
The Kirkcaldy-born front-rower has also played for Border Reivers, Edinburgh Rugby, Worcester Warriors and is currently in his second stint at Glasgow.
“Now is the right time to hang up my boots for both my body and my mind,” said Grant.
“The club (Glasgow Warriors) has been a huge part of my life and a fantastic experience for me. I can attribute nearly everything in my life to this rugby club it will always mean an awful lot to me.
“There are so many games that stand out for me. Ulster back-to-back at home were two of the most physical games of my life and being part of a title-winning season was pretty special (in 2015).
“It was always an honour to represent my country too. My first cap, beating Australia in Australia was pretty special and any Championship win was an amazing feeling.
“I am so embedded in Glasgow Warriors, so is my family. I’ve invested so much of my time and my body in Glasgow that I’ll always be a supporter.”
