Glasgow Warriors have secured the services of Bath fly-half Adam Hastings after signing a two year deal with the Pro 12 side.

Hastings joined Bath in 2014 and has featured for the Recreation Ground outfit 12 times. He is also the son of former Scotland captain Gavin.

Hastings hopes that his return to Glasgow Warriors will ignite his hope of representing Scotland.

"From a young age I wanted to play for Scotland and I believe playing in Scotland is the right decision for me at this stage of my career.

"As a young 10 it's important to get game-time and hopefully I'll get that opportunity in Glasgow.

"I'm excited about working under Dave Rennie as I've heard he is a world-class coach.

"There are some quality players in Glasgow and I can't wait to get up there and start working with them.

"I like to run the ball, I'm quite an instinctive player and I like to have a crack. I like the way Finn (Russell) plays and I can't wait to get up there and learn from him.

"Qualifying for the quarter-finals in Europe was a big statement of where the club is going and I'm excited to be joining them next season."

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend, who is set to take in charge of Scotland in June believes the experience Hastings had with Bath with prove handy for the Scotscoun outfit.

"Adam trained with us a couple of years ago and he has really developed during his time at Bath, working with the likes of George Ford and Rhys Priestland.

"It's great that he has decided to move back to Scotland and I'm sure he'll fit in very well at Scotstoun next season."
