Wood has rejoined until the end of the season after a successful months loan, and Scott told the clubs website he was pleased with the wingers return.
"I am delighted with the deal we have got," said Scott.
"It is a fantastic deal and it took a little bit of courage on my part to make it happen.
"We didn't think it would work out for Sam to come back but sometimes you take a gamble and it pays off, and fortunately Brentford decided that he is surplus to requirements."
Wood was initially thought to be staying down in the South but Scott's persistence to get his man has paid off.
