“We’ve got so much talent in this group that we’re aiming for silverware – we were pretty close last year and we want to go one better this year.”

Assistant coach John Dalziel added: "Matt was superb for us in the closing stages of last season.

“His dynamism with ball in hand and his work ethic around the pitch give us an added dimension to our attack, and his physicality is a real asset to our defence.

“The great thing for us is that, at just 21, he’s only going to get better in the next few years and I’m excited to see what he’s going to do in a Glasgow shirt.”
