Glasgow Warriors have confirmed that head coach Dave Rennie has penned a new one-year deal that will keep him with the Pro14 club until 2020.

The 55-year-old took in charge of the club in 2017 when he replaced Gregor Townsend, who went on to become the head coach of Scotland and on his maiden outing he led the club to the semi-final in the 2017/18 edition of Pro14.

Even in the ongoing edition, the Scotstoun outfit are placed second in Conference A table with eight wins from 13 games and in the Heineken Champions Cup they are positioned second in Pool 3 behind Saracens.

"I'm going to be here for at least another year-and-a-half, possibly longer," he said.

"It's been really good, we are really happy.

"If I'm not here, who is going to be running the show and contracting? It gives players clarity over who is going to be here."

Glasgow's campaign though suffered a setback as they lost back to back games to rivals Edinburgh followed by another 20-17 loss to Benetton Treviso and will now host Cardiff Blues in the round 5 of the Champions Cup at Scotstoun Stadium.

Rennie also has experience of coaching Wellington, Hurricanes, Chiefs, Manawatu and New Zealand U20 in the past
