Glasgow Warriors back-row Ally Miller has signed a new two-year deal to remain at Scotstoun, the club has confirmed. 

The 27-year-old is enjoying an excellent season with the Warriors and was called in to train with the Scotland squad during the Six Nations. 

Miller has been a regular in squads throughout the season for Franco Smith, making 11 appearances to date, while he scored his first try for the club against Bayonne in a 12-11 victory in the Champions Cup in December. 

He also scored in the victory over Edinburgh at Scotstoun, the club from where he joined Warriors in 2021. Miller also had a spell with London Scottish and impressed while playing for Scotland Sevens before making the move to Glasgow. 

Now he's been handed a new contract and is thrilled to have committed his future to the club. 

He said: "Since arriving at the club, I’ve been really fortunate to receive the opportunities that I have, but I’ve also had a few injuries.

"I’ve loved the stretch of game time that I’ve had this season, and knowing that Franco has the confidence in you and the squad to get the job done is testament to how much everyone is pulling in the right direction.

“I’ve just enjoyed getting my head down and working hard to get back into action, and everyone at the club has been brilliant.

"That was a big factor in my decision to renew, because knowing that people at the club have faith in you and what you contribute to the team is massive. I’m loving being a part of the club, and I’m grateful for every opportunity I get."

Miller has stern competition in the back-row, with the Scotland international trio Matt Fagerson, Rory Darge and Jack Dempsey, plus Tonga's Sione Vailanu also on the books at Scotstoun. 

With Vailanu injured, Miller could be involved in the Champions Cup last 16 clash with Harlequins on Friday. 

He said the competition for places, which includes youngster Euan Ferrie, Tom Gordon and Henco Venter, is helping Glasgow challenge domestically and in Europe this season.

He added: “It’s a cliché, but we just take each game as it comes. It’s been a real squad effort to put us in this position to compete at the business end of the season and I’m proud to be part of this group of players.

"Having the whole squad aligned has been huge for us this season, and the character being shown from everyone really shines through. I’m excited to get stuck in.”

Glasgow head coach Smith added: “Ally has shown great dedication to come back from the long-term injury he suffered last season, and he has taken every opportunity that has come his way with both hands.

“He has been a big contributor for us this season, not just on the field but around the training environment. He’s a very detailed player and person and he gives his all across the board.

“We’re looking forward to helping to further develop Ally and help him become the best version of himself.”
