Hooker Pat MacArthur - this week handed a new two-year deal - returns from injury for Glasgow Warriors rearranged match with Racing in the Champions Cup.

MacArthur returns following six weeks on the sidelines with a jaw injury - sustained in the home defeat to Northampton Saints and joins Ferguson and Gordon Reid in the front row.

The Warriors European opener was postponed in November, following the shocking terrorist attack in the city.

Finn Russell has been surprisingly shifted from stand-off to inside centre as he replaces the injured Peter Horne.

Leone Nakarawa returns to the side to partner captain Jonny Gray in the second-row and the only change to the back-row sees Adam Ashe come in for the injured Josh Strauss at number eight, with Ryan Wilson and Chris Fusaro continuing at blindside and openside.

In the backs, Hogg lines up alongside wings Taqele Naiyaravoro and Sean Lamont, while Mark Bennett is joined in the centres by Russell.

Duncan Weir once again starts at fly-half with Ali Price at scrum-half.
