The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Stu­art Mar­shall

BRENT­FORD mid­fielder Alan Judge is not “an­gry” about the way he is be­ing treated by the club – ac­cord­ing to man­ager Dean Smith.

Judge, who has been the tar­get of bids from Burn­ley and Sh­effield Wed­nes­day this month, was ru­moured to be un­happy about the new con­tract the club wanted him to sign.

His cur­rent deal ends in the sum­mer of 2017 and Smith said: “I think I’ve waxed lyri­cal about Alan ever since I’ve been here.

“He’s been very good in the dress­ing room. Sto­ries of him be­ing an­gry – I haven’t seen that at all.

“Alan en­joys it here. It’s a good en­vi­ron­ment to work in. There’s a cul­ture around the place that he likes.

“You see him play­ing with free­dom and play­ing with a smile on his face and play­ing well.

“He just loves play­ing foot­ball. He’s got a su­perb at­ti­tude and just wants to get bet­ter.

“He’s had a fruit­ful sea­son in front of goal and he wants to keep scor­ing and get­ting bet­ter. His ul­ti­mate aim is to get into the Ire­land squad at the Euros.”
