Cardiff City skipper Steven Caulker says the players are to blame for their relegation.

Caulker insists that while off the field issues have been a struggle, the players are accountable.

"Yeah, there's been the antics off the pitch," said Caulker. "I think we're strong characters in there.

"I think everyone managed to block it out and just focused on what we were doing on the pitch.

"But we've got to hold our hands up - there's definitely no excuses for the way we've performed in too many games."
