Neil McDonald has said he doesn’t know if he will remain as Blackpool manager after the club were relegated to League Two.

A 5-1 defeat at Peterborough on Sunday confirmed relegation to England’s fourth tier, just five seasons after Blackpool featured in the Premiership.

When asked where relegation left him in terms his own position as manager, McDonald told BBC Radio Lancashire: “We’ll see.

I apologise to the fans for the whole of the season, not just today. We haven’t been good enough.”

McDonald, 50, refused to clarify whether he would walk away from the managerial role at Bloomfield Road.

He took the job in June 2015, shortly after Blackpool’s relegation from the Championship.

McDonald revealed that he will meet with chairman Karl Oyston on Monday for talks about his future.

“It’s been planned for a long time and let’s see how that goes,” added the Blackpool boss.

“We’ve just been relegated as a football club. We’ve got some good players in the changing room but they certainly haven’t done themselves justice all the way through the season.”

He continued: “It wasn’t about today – it was about the rest of the season, the poor start that we had after trying to build a new team, and certainly the lack of goals all the way through has cost us.

“One point out of 15 was not a good start, even though we hardly had any players to start off with.

“We’ve competed, we’ve played well, we haven’t played well, we’ve won games, we’ve lost games – in the end we’ve been relegated by not scoring enough goals throughout the season.”
