Glasgow's Miller 'grateful' for faith shown in him as he signs new contract

Ally Miller says the "faith" shown in him was a "big factor" in him resigning with Glasgow Warriors.

The back-rower has signed a new contract with the Scotstoun club until the summer of 2026.

Eleven of Miller's 26 appearances for Glasgow since switching from Edinburgh in 2021 have come this season in a breakthrough campaign.

“I’m really excited to re-sign,” Miller told Warriors club media. “Since arriving at the club, I’ve been really fortunate to receive the opportunities that I have, but I’ve also had a few injuries.

“I’ve loved the stretch of game time that I’ve had this season, and knowing that Franco [Smith] has the confidence in you and the squad to get the job done is testament to how much everyone is pulling in the right direction.

“I’ve just enjoyed getting my head down and working hard to get back into action, and everyone at the club has been brilliant. That was a big factor in my decision to renew, because knowing that people at the club have faith in you and what you contribute to the team is massive. I’m loving being a part of the club, and I’m grateful for every opportunity I get.”

Glasgow head coach Smith added: “Ally has shown great dedication to come back from the long-term injury he suffered last season, and he has taken every opportunity that has come his way with both hands.

“He has been a big contributor for us this season, not just on the field but around the training environment. He’s a very detailed player and person and he gives his all across the board.

“We’re looking forward to helping to further develop Ally and help him become the best version of himself.”
