Laws vows to stay on at Clarets

Manager Brian Laws admitted he has been left "devastated" by Burnley's relegation but insists he is the right man to lead them back to the Premier League.

Sunday's 4-0 home defeat at the hands of Liverpool brought an end to the Clarets' brief one-season spell in the top-flight.

Laws' future at Turf Moor has come under the spotlight in recent weeks following his inability to inspire a resurgence after taking the managerial reins back in January.

He won just two of his 17 games at the helm following his surprise appointment at the turn of the year when Owen Coyle left Turf Moor to take over at Bolton Wanderers.

However, the defiant former Sheffield Wednesday and Scunthorpe United boss has no intention of walking away from the Clarets.

"Yes I will be here next season. I'm looking forward to next season," he declared.

"We will take stock and hopefully do a West Brom and bounce straight back."

Meanwhile, chairman Barry Kilby has promised a full post mortem before deciding which direction the club will take before returning to Championship action.

He said: "We'll sit down with Brian in the summer, he didn't have a great hand when he arrived and we'll see where we go from there."
