FORMER skipper Alan Bennett admits his Brentford exit has left a bitter taste in his mouth.

The Irishman was a revelation during several loan spells from Reading, helping the Bees to the League Two title, before moving to TW8 on a permanent deal last summer.

However, he failed to cement a regular starting spot under Andy Scott , and was shipped out on loan to Wycombe Wanderers where he returned for good last week.

But the 28-year-old centre-back was quick to fire a parting shot at Bees boss Scott.

He said: "I am happy to draw a line under the Brentford situation because it got a bit sticky towards the end and I am happy to move on.

"I came back end of last season and asked the manager (Andy Scott) what my situation was and how the land lay for me to see if I would get a second chance.

"He told me to come back and work hard but then he called me in and told me it was the end of road so it was a bit of a slap in the face.

"The whole thing for me was a massive disappointment and left a bitter taste."
