Neill was verbally abused by a huge number of Blackburn supporters despite his five-year service with the club.
Speaking to the BBC, Neil said "I was disgusted with the reception I got, I had five-and-a-half years at the club.
"I was always committed to Blackburn and never complained about anything.
"Then when I want to further myself, I get that kind of reception.
"People have come here for six months, a year, not tried hard and walked away with a pay-off.
"Here's me, who has tried his heart out, getting a reception like that. I am very disappointed."
