Neil "humbled" by Norwich fans' support

Norwich suffer Premier League relegation for the fourth time

Norwich manager Alex Neil says he feels "humbled" by the support of the fans following the Canaries' relegation from the Premier League.

Norwich return to the Championship following Sunderland's 3-0 win over Everton at the Stadium of Light, despite their own emphatic 4-2 victory over Watford at Carrow Road.

Neil, who led Norwich to the Premier League last year via the play-offs after just five months in the job, thanked the fans for their support at the final whistle and insisted that he doesn't fear the sack despite overseeing the Canaries' second relegation in three seasons.

"It is severe disappointment. In recent matches we have known it was going to be a difficult match. We had it in our hands five matches ago but we came up short," the Scot told Sky Sports.

"The story for us is that as a club, we have dropped short for a variety of reasons. We have made vital errors in games at crucial times and the recruitment has not been as good to strengthen the squad.

"The support was humbling for me. We have not given them too much to shout about and that makes it harder for me to accept for letting them down."

"I am here to do a job, the club will be bigger than me and I am not fearing for my job."
