Glasgow Warriors have announced that Scotland international Ryan Wilson will leave the club at the end of the 2022/23 season.

Wilson made his senior club debut for the Warriors in 2010 and has racked up 220 appearances for the club since then. He is also second in the list of most-capped players for the club after Rob Harley.

The 33-year-old also served as club captain from 2017 until 2022. He made his international debut for Scotland in 2013 against Wales and has 50 caps to his name.

“I’m so proud to have had the opportunity to represent this club,” Wilson said.

“We’ve been so lucky to have some unbelievable players come through, but some even better men.

“I’ve been through some very low lows and some exceptional highs, and I’m incredibly thankful to have had Bex and the kids with me through them all."

Wilson also highlighted that the 2015 Guinness PRO12 Final victory over Munster at the Kingspan Stadium has been the highest point of his career.

“Winning the title is definitely right up there with the greatest memories in my time here.

"It had been such a massive journey to get to that point – make the semis but lose, then make the semis and win, then the final in Dublin that we lost, then finally the semi-final win over Ulster and that final victory over Munster in 2015. Everything clicked that day. I’ll never forget it.

“If people look back and realise how much I’ve poured into the jersey every time, then I’ll be a happy man.”
