Following last weekend's news, concerning Brentford loan winger Lionel Ainsworth, the player himself has confirmed that he has left Griffin Park and returned to his parent club Huddersfield Town.
Ainsworth stalked off down the tunnel when he was substituted on the hour mark during last weekend's 1-1 draw at Griffin Park against Yeovil Town, leading his manager Andy Scott to vow that he would never play for the Bees again. Despite Ainsworth later apologising about his behaviour, through the local media, the former Hereford United winger has told the Staines News that he was shown the door and sent back to the Galpharm Stadium after playing for Brentford Reserves on Monday. But Ainsworth was unimpressed with Scott's failure to tell him the news in person:
"He didn't tell me personally. I got a call from my agent after the reserve game on Monday to say they didn't want me back, so I didn't have a chance to apologise in person. I'm going to go back to Huddersfield now and get my head down. I came to Brentford to play games, but I made just one start, and that was with three games left. It's not enough, and I don't know why he didn't pick me."
We think it's probably safe to say that Andy Scott and Lionel Ainsworth will not be teaming up with each other next season.
