Scotland international Rory Lamont announces that he is to retire from professional rugby due to injury.

Scotland international Rory Lamont has announced that he is to retire from professional rugby due to injury.

The Glasgow Warriors utility back has struggled to regain full fitness after suffering a broken leg while on Six Nations duty for Scotland against France last year.

The 30-year-old rejoined the Warriors in December 2011, after spending three years at the club between 2004 and 2007, but made just six appearances before suffering his career-ending injury.

"I'm sad to be retiring from professional rugby but I've been struggling with injury for some time now and it's clear I won't be able to get back to the level I was playing at before," Sky Sports News quotes Lamont as saying.

"It's fantastic to have been at the club during this exciting time and I wish them all the very best for the remaining games this season."

Lamont won 29 caps for Scotland.
