Bees star ‘gutted’ Warburton is leaving

Brentford striker Andre Gray says he is “gutted” manager Mark Warburton will be leaving in the summer.

Warburton, who will be replaced as part of a change of structure at Griffin Park, has shown great faith in Gray since the 23-year-old was signed from Luton last summer.

“Mark’s a great manager. He’s been fantastic to me and I don’t have a bad word to say about him,” Gray told West London Sport.

“It was a massive culture shock when I joined. I didn’t know the level of fitness required and that the pace of the game would be so intense, but I’m used to it now and that’s thanks partly to him.

“I can’t explain how grateful I am to him for giving me the opportunity to come here and the amount of games I have played so far.

“I’m gutted he’s leaving but it’s not just me – all the players are gutted.”
