A fun petition to get Scotland and Glasgow Warriors legend Sean Lamont to dye his hair blonde and wear orange gloves before retirement – like he did over a decade ago – has been signed by nearly 450 people.

Winger Lamont, who has played over 100 times for his country and the Warriors in a fine career, is set to hang up his boots after the final Guinness PRO12 match against Edinburgh Rugby on May 6.

And the Scotland Rugby News website has set up a fun petition urging Lamont to dye his hair and wear the famous gloves for one last time.

The site, tongue in cheek, states: “There are few Scottish rugby players more beloved than Sean Lamont. That’s why we’d like him to bow out next month as he came in – with peroxide blonde and wearing orange gloves.

 “With that in mind, and with a clear hunger from Glasgow Warriors and Scotland fans, we decided to create a petition to the player himself.

“In it we ask the legend of the game, known for his never-say-die playing attitude and passion for the game to give one last parting gift: Please peroxide your hair and wear orange gloves for us on the 6th of May.

“The date is significant because, should he be picked it would be his last game of professional rugby for Glasgow, but also because it’s the biggest game in the Scottish club calendar: the 1872 Scottish Cup second leg.”
