He has scored six tries in 14 Scotland appearances, including a hat-trick against Russia at the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, where he became just the fifth Scotland player – and the first in 12 years - to cross for a treble on the sport’s biggest stage.

Glasgow did not reveal the length of the contract.

“This is a club I’ve grown up supporting and I’ve made some great memories being a part of this team,” Horne told glasgowwarriors.org.

“I’m champing at the bit to get back playing. Recovery is going really well, and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Glasgow head coach Danny Wilson said: “George is very passionate about Glasgow and he shows that every time he takes the field.

“Along with Jamie, Ali [Price] and Sean, George’s signing gives us great depth with four outstanding Scottish scrum-halves to pick from.”
