Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean insists he has a good relationship with fans.
Kean deflected questions on the barracking he received throughout Monday's tortuous loss and the clear hatred towards him from supporters.
He said: "Most of the time, at home, the fans were more supportive.
"They are disappointed, the same as everyone. We are all disappointed we are not going to be in the league but we gave it a really good go."
When asked if fans deserved an apology for Rovers' sorry season, he said: "You would have to ask each individual fan.
"When I met the fans in and around this village [Brockhall, location of Rovers' training base], all they do is say we are with you and we support you.
"I don't get anybody coming up to me and saying they deserve an apology."
