Harley’s imminent departure was announced in March. The 31-year-old has played more games for Glasgow than any other player and his appearance against the Bulls at the weekend was his 264th for the club. Harley has spoken about the possibility of continuing his career in France.

Fellow lock McDonald, 27, was called into the Scotland squad for the Six Nations match against France in February and has agreed a deal to join Wasps.

Bain, Lambert and McQuillin have all struggled for game-time this season, while Scotland international Stewart finds himself up against George Turner, Fraser Brown and Johnny Matthews in the hooker position.

Fergusson, the Scotland sevens international, rejoined the club for a third spell last November to provide cover at centre.

Danny Wilson, the Glasgow coach, paid tribute to those moving on.

“Each player leaving has applied themselves, worked hard and been passionate about playing for Glasgow Warriors,” Wilson told the club’s website.

“We wish our leavers all the best and would like to thank them for what they have done as Warriors - their contributions both on and off the field cannot be underestimated.”
