Scotland international Sean Lamont and winger Rory Hughes have signed new deals with the Glasgow Warriors.

Lamont has penned a new two-year contract with Hughes signing on for one more year. Lamont, who has 86 caps for Scotland, will feature in the Commonwealth Games for Scotland in Sevens but is looking forward to continuing his XV rugby with the Warriors.

"It was fantastic to be able to come back to Glasgow in 2012 and I'm delighted to be staying here for at least another two years," Lamont said. "I'm now one of the oldest players at the club, but I feel good and I want to continue to play at the highest level for as long as possible. I'm happy in Glasgow and I'm proud to be playing for this club.

"We've had a good season so far but we're not finished yet. We're all really looking forward to our first RaboDirect PRO12 final this weekend."

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "This will give everyone at the club and our supporters a boost ahead of the final with Leinster on Saturday. Sean [Lamont] has worked hard this season and is in great physical shape. He has played in four different positions in the backline for us and has performed at a consistently high level.

"Rory [Hughes] is strong, quick and has made a number of technical improvements this season. The work he has put in has been transferred into much more control and discipline in his game. It's great news that he's going to continue his development at Scotstoun. This season Rory gained an understanding of what is required at pro level and he also played very well at the Melrose 7s. His hard work led him to being our top try scorer on the day. We are delighted that both Sean and Rory are staying at the club."
