Munster, buoyed by Keith Earls’ return following a hamstring injury, struck first through James Cronin, but George Horne’s double was added to by scores from Matt Fagerson and Pete Horne to help give the Warriors a 14-point lead with 20 minutes remaining.
Alex Wootton powered in on the left to reduce the deficit and after Ian Keatley converted Alby Mathewson’s clever try, the hosts trailed by just two points.
Glasgow conceded a pivotal penalty at the breakdown near the touchline at the death and Scannell made them pay with a sweet three-pointer to send the home fans into raptures.
