Johnnie Beattie to leave Glasgow Warriors

Johnnie Beattie has played 16 times for Scotland

Scotland flanker Johnnie Beattie is to call time on his Glasgow Warriors career at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old son of former Scotland and British & Irish Lions forward John Beattie joined Glasgow in 2004 and is approaching the end of his contract.

Beattie made a try-scoring debut for Scotland against Romania in the 2006 autumn Test series.

The last of his 16 caps came in a World Cup warm-up with Ireland last year as he was overlooked for the tournament.

Beattie has struggled with his fitness and form since a shoulder injury sustained after an impressive Six Nations campaign in 2010.

On Tuesday, Glasgow confirmed that former All Black back-row forward Angus Macdonald will be joining them for next season.
