Former Brentford boss Andy Scott confessed he still has a special relationship with the Bees and is delighted to see them in the Championship this season.

Scott, manager from 2007 to 2011, has a lot of fond memories from his time in west London and hopes the side can find their feet after League One promotion.

“It’s terrific to see them up in the Championship, a lot of people there have done ever so well,” he said.

“I still keep an eye on them as I have a lot of affection there. I always enjoy going back, so hopefully they will continue to do well.

“It’s going to be a tough year as the Championship is so different to League One.

“It’s a new challenge, but they have good players and I want them to progress.”
