"The supporters have every right to be angry. We can have no complaints all of us. That was awful first half.

"I take full responsibility as manager. There is an awful lot of work to do. We finished sixth and that is where we deserve to finish.

"If the owners want me to go, I go. it is as simple as that. But i still feel I have a lot to offer here. Performances like today don't help you.

"I want to be here. There are a number of key elements of the performance that didnt surprise me. We will address those in the summer."
