Hull City will play in the Championship next season after getting relegated from the Premier League.

Hull City duo Tom Huddlestone and Robert Snodgrass have taken to social networking site Twitter to express their disappointment at the team’s relegation from the Premier League.

The Tigers have finished the 2014-15 Premier League campaign third from bottom in the table with 35 points from 38 matches.

Steve Bruce’s side had a chance to escape the drop on the final day of the season on Sunday, but things did not go their way.

Hull had to win against Manchester United at the KC Stadium and needed Newcastle United to lose to West Ham United at St. James’ Park.

While the Tigers played out a goalless draw with United at home, Newcastle defeated the Hammers 2-0.

Following the relegation, Hull midfielder Huddlestone posted the following message on Twitter and continued on Sportlobster.com: “Worse day in my football career today. Absolutely gutted.

“Felt we played ok today but generally throughout the whole season we haven't been good enough for large periods of the season. The fans were amazing today and all season. I am gutted as much for you all as for us.

“Thanks for the amazing support and sorry we couldn't have done what we all set out to do which was kick on this season and establish ourselves as a premier league team. Painful day.”

Former Leeds United winger Snodgrass sent this message to the Hull fans on Twitter:

Queens Park Rangers and Burnley are the other two sides who have been relegated from the Premier League.
