Kellock ruled out for months after undergoing shoulder surgery

Glasgow Warriors captain Al Kellock has been ruled out for "several months" after undergoing shoulder surgery.

The 56-cap Scotland lock was operated on by surgeon Umberto Fazzi at Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow following his team's RaboDirect Pro12 final defeat to Leinster.

But he is now a doubt for the start of next season after opting to have the long-standing injury fixed.

The 32-year-old was left out of Vern Cotter's first Scotland squads for matches against Canada, United States, Argentina and South Africa.

Glasgow say a number of other players are currently being assessed by the club's medical team following Saturday's 34-12 defeat in Dublin.

A Warriors spokesman added: "Glasgow Warriors would like to thank the Leinster team doctor Professor John Ryan and all the staff in the A&E department of St. Vincent's Hospital in Dublin for all their help following the game."
