The Albion defender spoke at yesterday's promotion parade.

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Liam Rosenior paid tribute to the club's supporters following the promotion parade yesterday.

Albion’s players were greeted by thousands as they travelled from Madeira Drive to Hove Lawns on an open-top bus, and Rosenior described the event as one of the best he’s experienced.

He said, “I loved every moment of it. When you’ve achieved what we’ve achieved, you can see how happy it’s made so many people.

“I’ve played in an FA Cup Final, been promoted to the Premier League before, but nothing comes close to this.

“You couldn't even describe the feeling, and it gives us the motivation to do well next season. This club has got so much potential; it’s got a big fanbase and we want to make sure we stay a Premier League club.

“There’s so many good people at the club and you see how much it means to them. We’ve done so well and it makes me so happy."

Rosenior dedicated the celebration to the fans, before praising his team-mates for their strength of character and togetherness, which he believes will be important in the top flight next season.

“The fans are the most important people at any football club. They’re the lifeblood of the club and I saw fans from the age of five to 80 out supporting us yesterday.

“I want to say thank you to them, and hopefully they continue to support us. All we try to do is our best for them.

“We’ve got good footballers, every team has good footballers, but we’ve got so many strong characters and such a strong team spirit.

“We’ve got a strong determination to do well for each other, and that will serve us well next season as well.”
