The Glasgow Warriors star arrived back in the country on Monday after a fractured facial bone forced him to depart from the Lions tour.

Hogg played in two of the first three games in New Zealand before suffering the injury in the 12-3 victory over Crusaders. He was officially ruled out of the rest of the tour last Tuesday.

To make matters worse, after the lengthy trip back home to Scotland, he arrived to find that his bag was not there to meet him.

Hogg posted on Twitter: “Ahhh cheers @British_Airways. No bag for me. Ideal. #StandardBA”
