The striker hit 17 league goals this term but admitted his over-riding emotion was disappointment after Rovers ended their 10-year stay in the Premier LeagueBlackburn striker Yakubu has admitted to having mixed emotions over a season in which his 17 Premier League goals could not prevent Blackburn's relegation.
The Lancashire outfit ended their 10-year stay in the top flight by finishing 19th this term but the Nigerian ended joint-fourth in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.
The 29 year-old, who joined Blackburn from Everton last August, also won the club's player of the season award this term but hailed his team-mates' role in his individual achievements.
Yakubu told Rovers Player: "I had a great season but I am really disappointed that we didn't stay in the league.
"I have to give credit to my team mates; I don't think that I'd have been able to score 17 league goals if it wasn't for them.
"It is one of the best seasons that I've ever had, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League, I feel good for that but then I also feel very sad."
The club has had its off-the-field problems this season, with fans venting their frustration at owners Venky’s and manager Steve Kean.
However, Yakubu spoke of the togetherness within the squad and targeted a quick return to the Premier League.
The striker added: "It is a family club, a club with great history, we all worked hard together, and we are all friends.
"It is sad that the club has gone down but we have to bounce back to the Premier League."
