Burnley were relegated from the Premier League on Sunday, the final day of the 2021/22 season.
The Clarets had to better the result of relegation rivals Leeds to extend their six-season stay in English football’s top flight.
But Burnley lost 2-1 at home to Newcastle while Leeds won 2-1 away to Brentford.
“It’s raw, we’ve got a group of players who are gutted,” Burnley interim manager Mike Jackson told the BBC.
“I don’t think there is any other word to say about that. The effort they’ve put in since we came in has been brilliant.
“Today we’ve come out on the wrong side of chasing the game. We had some really good chances but couldnt take them.”
He added: “There is a lot of emotion in it. I’m gutted for everyone involved but proud as well as I couldn’t have asked any more from them.
