Saracens have confirmed that Scotland forward Andy Christie has signed a long-term deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Christie started his professional rugby career with Old Albanian in 2017 and also played for Bishop's Stortford before joining Saracens in 2018. He has overall played 76 games for the club.

The 24-year-old also featured for Scotland in five games but a broken arm ruled him out of the Rugby World Cup campaign in France.

"Representing this club is one of the biggest privileges of my life," he told the club's official website.

"Saracens is my home, I love the club, I love the group and I’m excited to be a part of it going forward.”

Saracens Director of Rugby Mark McCall is excited with Christie committing his future with the club.

“Andy is another academy graduate of ours that we are very proud of. He is a very popular member of our group who we believe has an incredibly bright future.

"He has become a very influential player for us and at just 24 we are very excited to see him progress over the coming years.”
