Glasgow Warriors winger Tommy Seymour has described playing for Scotland as an "honour" as he announced his retirement from international rugby.

The 31-year-old took to social media this afternoon to confirm the news.

Thanking his former teammates and fellow countrymen he praised the fans and told of his pride at being able to pull on the dark blue jersey.

And he thanked his wife Katy for supporting him throughout his international career.

"Today I'd like to announce the decision to retire from international rugby," Seymour said.

"Playing for Scotland has been the greatest honour. 

"The pride from wearing the thistle on my chest is one of the most powerful feelings I've experienced. 

"It was in every way a dream come true and an amazing journey to share with friends, family and Scotland supporters. 

"I have been fortunate enough to play with some of the greatest players this country has ever produced and even more fortunate that in some I have found friends for life.

"To my loving wife Katy, who held the fort through my many days and months away from home, thank you for being my rock through all the ups and downs that come with playing international sport."

Seymour made 52 appearances for Scotland.
