Johnnie Jackson insists he will still be at Charlton next season and will give everything to get the club back into the Championship.
After a wretched season, the Addicks’ relegation to League One was confirmed after the goalless draw at Bolton last night.
The South Londoners have won just eight league games all season under three different managers.
Jackson said: “This is my club, I’ll be here next season and I’ll be giving it everything to try and get us back.
“I’ve been there before and captained the side to a promotion from League One and I know that won’t sound like much solace to the supporters at the moment, but we have to try and rebuild and recreate some of the spirit that we had that year.
“They were some of the best times in my career.
“I’m sure the fans enjoyed that year and we have to hope that we can rebuild in the right way and I’ll do all I can to help that process and approach next year like we did when we got out of League One.
“None of us want to be there. I want to get this club back to where it belongs, it certainly doesn’t belong in League One, and I’m just gutted that it has come to this.”
Jackson, who has played more than 200 games for the Addicks, says he is “gutted” for the fans who did not deserve to endure this dismal season.
He added: “The supporters are the ones I’m really gutted for, the guys that came up tonight and have supported us all season - they don’t deserve this.
“We deserve this as players because we haven’t been good enough but we can’t question the support that we have received and the effort that they have put in.
“Now we’re going to have to try and give them something; it won’t undo the damage but we have to try and give them something in the last three games and try and give them some hope for next season.”
