Harley’s impending departure was announced in March. The 31-year-old has played more games for Glasgow than any other player and his appearance against the Bulls this weekend was his 264th for the club. Harley spoke about the possibility of continuing her career in France.

Comrade Lock McDonald, 27, was called up to the Scotland squad for the Six Nations game against France in February and has agreed a deal to join Wasps.

‘An exciting time for Scottish women’s rugby’ despite Six Nations disappointment

Bain, Lambert and McQuillin have all struggled for playing time this season, while Scottish international Stewart finds himself up against George Turner, Fraser Brown and Johnny Matthews in the hooker position.

Fergusson, the seven-man Scottish international, joined the club on a third stint last November to provide cover at centre.

Glasgow coach Danny Wilson paid tribute to those leaving.

“Every starting player has applied, worked hard and been passionate about playing for Glasgow Warriors,” Wilson told the club’s website.

“We wish our starters the best and want to thank them for what they have done as Warriors – their contributions both on and off the field cannot be understated.”
