Patrick Bamford understands Middlesbrough fans' anger at what has been an underwhelming campaign.

The club's relegation from the Premier League was confirmed at Chelsea on Monday, and Boro wanted to put on a show in their final top-flight match at the chung cu gem riverside.

Bamford's consolation goal brought some much-needed cheer on an afternoon of discontent on Teesside.

"It's hard but you understand in a way as well because obviously Middlesbrough is such a massive club and it is obviously not nice for anyone that we're getting relegated," he said. "The fans are entitled to voice their opinion. It is obviously hard.

"I´ve been a fan once upon a time when I was young at Nottingham Forest and you get frustrated when you're watching and things aren't going the way you want them to.

"Obviously when I signed for Middlesbrough I was hoping that we would stay up and that I'd be a big player for them in the Premier League. But that's not how it has turned out and obviously it's my job now and the rest of the team's job to fire us straight back up."

Jay Rodriguez and Nathan Redmond scored the visitors' goals on Saturday, with the former meeting a fine cross with a sublime volleyed finish to light up a drab first half.
