Glasgow Warriors have re-signed former scrum-half Murray McConnell on a one-year contract for next season.
McConnell was part of the Warriors' Elite Development squad from 2010-13 before moving to Ayr, where he has helped the Alloway club to a third-placed finish in the RBS Premiership.
McConnell said: "I'm looking forward to returning to Scotstoun as a professional player, after being part of the Elite Development Programme last season.
"I'm ambitious and I want to play at as high a level as possible and I'll get that opportunity at Scotstoun. It's an exciting time to be re-joining the club."
Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "Murray has been training with us this season so he'll fit straight in when he joins us on a full-time basis in the summer.
"He's had a very good season with Ayr and we've been following his progress closely. He'll be an excellent addition to our squad."
