SEVERAL members of the Burnley squad have taken to social media following the Clarets’ relegation from the Premier League. Here's what they had to say.

Ben Mee

“I’m gutted about yesterday - a real shame we couldn't get the job done. We had put ourselves into a really good position towards the back end of the season but obviously the whole season wasn't good enough.

"The lads put in a lot of effort, it had been a really tough week and I think it took its toll a little bit. Fair play to Leeds, going away from home and winning on the last day of the season.

"I just want to thank you guys for your support throughout the season - I know it has been a difficult one.

"These past weeks have been some of the best I've seen. Home and away, the atmospheres have been fantastic and we've really appreciated the backing you have given us.

"It's been an emotional ride this year and we'll see what the future brings.”

James Tarkowski

“We gave it our all but it just wasn’t enough to get us over the line. Support has been incredible, especially this season when things have been tough. Thanks for sticking with us!”

Nick Pope

“Absolutely devastated, gutted after the weekend. We wanted to achieve our goal for so many reasons.

"The players, staff and fans gave absolutely everything to the cause and I’m so proud of everyone. Thank you to the fans for sticking by us all the way.”

Nathan Collins

“Had a few days to reflect and it doesn’t get any easier. As a group we gave it our all but it just wasn’t enough. A special thank you to the fans who have been unbelievable all season.”

Josh Brownhill

"Absolutely gutted we couldn't get it done. Just wanted to say thank you to all the fans that supported us right until the end, you definitely helped us.

"Time to rest and then go again for next season and bring the club back to where it belongs. See you soon."

Dwight McNeil

"Been a few days and still hurts. Just want to say a big thank you to the fans for being behind us through a difficult season."
