PETER HORNE has signed on for another three seasons at Glasgow Warriors, the club announced on Friday.
The Scotland international made his debut for the Pro12 club in March 2009 and will stretch his stay to more than a decade after putting pen to paper on a new deal until 2020.
The versatile back from Aberdeen, who can play at fly-half or centre, has racked up 23 caps for his country, but missed out on this year's Six Nations through injury.

“I’ve loved my time here and I love the club," he told glasgowwarriors.org.
"I’m passionate about playing my rugby in Glasgow. When the club came to me it was a no-brainer. We’re going places, which was summed up this year with us making the European Rugby Champions Cup quarter-finals for the first time.
“As soon as we signed up Dave Rennie for next season it made it an easy decision. When his name was mentioned it filled me with excitement as I’ve watched a lot of Super Rugby and the Chiefs are a great team. He plays a brilliant brand of rugby and it seems like all the players really play for him.
“I’m hungry to get better as a player and all the boys here are hungry to do better. I feel like I’ve played a big part over the last seven or eight years and it’s a journey I want to continue.”
Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend, who will be replaced by Rennie after taking over the Scotland job this summer, added: “Peter is one of our hardest working players and epitomises what it means to be a Warrior, setting himself and others high standards in training every day.
“He deals with injuries and takes on new challenges with positive energy, which inspires everyone at the club.
“It’s great news that he’s staying in Glasgow for another three years.”
