Glasgow University's governing body has decided to extend the appointment of its current principal by five years after his current term expires in 2014.

Professor Anton Muscatelli arrived from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh for an initial five-year tenure in 2009.

Glasgow University Court has now "unanimously endorsed" a recommendation to extend this until 2019.

Prof Muscatelli said he was "extremely grateful" for the "strong message of support".
