'Gutted' Scott Parker with Fulham officially relegated

Fulham have been relegated from the Premier League after losing 2-0 to Burnley.

The Cottagers have been relegated along with Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion, marking the first time all three bottom-placed clubs have been relegated with three games remaining.

After 35 minutes, Matej Vydra displayed deft footwork to pick out Ashley Westwood, who rolled the ball into an empty net to give Burnley the lead.

Chris Wood doubled the lead a minute before halftime, making it even more difficult for the hosts.

Scott Parker said to BBC Sport: "It has been looming but it doesn't hide the disappointment, hurt, and sadness I feel tonight. I am gutted."

"This year at times, while we have had some big improvements and pushed on in certain elements, the facts are we have fallen short. We have not been quite good enough."

"At this moment in time, I have nothing but sadness. Now and in the coming days, we will have a long, hard think and regroup. My job is to make sure these games end in the right way.

"The club needs to make big decisions. We've had a relegation, a promotion, and a relegation. The rollercoaster of that and the highs and lows is not something you want.

"As a football club, we need to make good decisions and work out where we want to go."
