Flying Fijians halfback Nikola Matawalu has extended his contract with Glasgow Warriors until May 2019.
The 28-year-old who rejoined the Warriors for a second stint in August on a 1-year-deal impressed the club officials with his performance in all matches he played, giving them a reason to extend his stay.
He has scored 28 tries in 84 appearances across both stints at Scotstoun, helping Glasgow to their first Pro12 triumph in 2015.
"I'm very happy and excited to be staying at Glasgow Warriors for another year," Matawalu told WarriorsTV.
"I always say that when you're happy you will perform well, so I'm very honoured to be back and I'm looking forward to being here for another season.
"It's good playing in front of our supporters and I'm enjoying playing under [head coach] Dave [Rennie] and being part of his team."
Matawalu, who can also play on the wing or at full-back, has crossed twice for Glasgow since returning to the club, and sparked a stunning 95m counter attack that led to Nick Grigg's try in Warriors' win over Leinster.
He has made 33 appearances for Fiji and played in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Matawalu played back played for Glasgow between 2012 and 2015 before spells with Bath and Exeter Chiefs in the English Premiership.
