The Glasgow Warriors backline will boast yet more international quality in season 2012/13, after it was confirmed that Sean Lamont is to return to the club from the start of the next campaign.
The news comes just over a fortnight after his brother Rory rejoined the Warriors after a four-year hiatus.
Sean, a powerful wing who can also play in the centres, spent two seasons with the Warriors between 2003 and 2005, endearing himself to the Glasgow support with his fearless attacking and try-scoring prowess.
The 30-year-old crossed the whitewash 14 times in 32 Pro 12 appearances, and established an even better European strike rate: seven scores in 10 games.
He moved to Northampton Saints in 2005, and has spent the last two-and-a-half seasons in Wales with Scarlets. He will see out the rest of the campaign in Llanelli before making his emotional homecoming.
Lamont, who has signed until the end of May 2015, said: "I'm delighted to be coming back to the Warriors. They're a fantastic club with a great team environment, a hugely talented squad and a very clear idea of where they want to go in the coming years.
"I've heard all about the plans to keep developing Glasgow on and off the field, and can’t wait to have a look around Scotstoun Stadium, where we'll be playing our games as of next year.
"The club have clearly come a long way since I was last involved, and I'm thrilled at the prospect of playing my part in helping them write the next few chapters in the story.
"It will also be fantastic to be back at the same club as Rory. We both took huge pride in wearing that Glasgow jersey a few years ago, and it will be something really special to be pulling it on together once again.
"I'm pleased to have my future sorted out in such a positive fashion, but for now it's about putting the move to one side and giving my all for Scarlets during the rest of the campaign. I've thoroughly enjoyed playing for the club, and they've been great to me and my family."
Head coach Sean Lineen couldn't hide his delight at the announcement, saying: "I'm massively excited to have brought Sean back on board. He's a real tough competitor who knows his way round the Pro 12 and Heineken Cup, and offers great positional versatility to boot.
"He's always kept Glasgow close to his heart, and that passion will be a fantastic asset for us when allied to his obvious playing and try-scoring ability.
"With David Lemi and Rory Lamont also having joined, we've now signed three fine international players in the last month. It's a real statement of intent from the club and Scottish Rugby, and it's now up to us as a squad and coaching staff to make the most of the tools we're being given."
Since making his Test debut in 2004, Sean Lamont has been a key figure in the Scotland side, starting all the team's games at the recent Rugby World Cup to take his cap haul to 60.
