Blues midfielder on defeat at Deepdale
Alan Judge described Town's 4-0 defeat to Preston at Deepdale as "embarrassing."
Two goals in each half did the damage as Blues suffered their heaviest loss since April last year.
"Nothing about the performance was good enough and I apologise to the fans," the Republic of Ireland international told iFollow Ipswich.
"I think the relegation hit us hard because that's not like us. Yes we've lost a lot of games by the odd goal but it's the first time we have been beaten that heavily this season.
"I'm embarrassed to be honest. We know we're down but we shouldn't be playing like that.
"We can't sugar-coat it and I'm just glad that we have another game coming up quickly because we need a chance to bounce back."
