Bees reject O's manager link

22 January 2009 11:32
Brentford chairman Greg Dyke has dismissed claims that his manager Andy Scott is set to leave the club to take charge of Leyton Orient. Orient parted company with former boss Martin Ling last week, but Dyke has rejected the prospect of his man leaving Griffin Park. He told BBC London: "I can't believe he'd go. He's got a side challenging for promotion. "Orient aren't a richer club and look like they could be relegated so why would he do that?" Scott has had playing spells at both clubs, most recently at Orient, before retiring due to a heart problem. He took over Orient's youth side before becoming the Brentford assistant manager. He became the Bees boss in November 2007. Dyke added: "Over the years we've, by-and-large, been in a higher league than Orient, they're not a bigger club than we are."
