Mark Warburton, David Weir and Frank McParland sign new contracts at Griffin Park.

Brentford FC Sporting Director Frank McParland, Manager Mark Warburton and Assistant Manager David Weir have now all committed their futures to The Bees by signing new contracts.
The trio have signed new one-year rolling contracts at Griffin Park.
The news comes as Brentford gear up for their first season in the Sky Bet Championship since 1992/93.
Mark Warburton has been at the Club since early 2011, firstly as Interim First Team Coach and then Sporting Director.
He was named Brentford Manager in December 2013 and steered The Bees to second place in League One in 2013/14, earning promotion to the second tier.
When Mark moved from the Sporting Director role he was replaced by Frank McParland, who had previously been Director of Academy and Head of Player Development at Liverpool.
Former Scotland international defender David Weir arrived soon after to work alongside Mark as Brentford FC Assistant Manager.
Cliff Crown, Brentford FC Chairman, said: “The past few months have been brilliant for everyone connected with the Club.
“To earn promotion to The Championship was always the aim and to do so in the style we did, breaking points records, winning 19 homes games out of 23 and doing it with games to spare was exhilarating.
“I am delighted we have secured the futures of Frank, Mark and David.
“When they joined forces around six months ago the Club was making great progress. 
“Together they have built on those foundations and are looking to crystallise our place in a higher division.
“Brentford FC is now a Championship club continuing to develop on the field and with a new stadium on the horizon.
“Almost 5,000 supporters have already bought Season Tickets and I know that number will rise.
“I am sure all Brentford fans will see that everyone connected with the Club is united and moving in the same direction and, like me, will be very happy that we have secured three key men to help lead us in to the challenges ahead.”
