Franco Smith has been appointed Glasgow Warriors head coach on a two-year deal.

The former Italy head coach, 50, was most recently the country's head of high performance.

Warriors parted with Danny Wilson following the 76-14 United Rugby Championship quarter-final play-off defeat by Leinster.

"I have followed Glasgow for a long time, since coaching at Benetton when they joined the Pro12 in 2010," said Smith.

"The way they play has always appealed to me because their style is embraced by the fans.

"In coaching I always have these objectives: to play a winning brand of rugby; to have a style that is good to watch and that the fans can associate with.

"There are also opportunities at Glasgow to contribute to the pathway for up-and-coming players, making sure we are developing creative, fit, and knowledgeable rugby players from a young age that we will bring all the way through to Scotland."

Glasgow begin the new season in Italy, against Benneton on the weekend of 16-18 September, and meet Cardiff in their first home game the following weekend.

More to follow.
