The team from the Highlands were beaten 5-4 on penalties by Hearts at Easter Road after being tied at 1-1 through extra time.

Andrew Shinnie had given Inverness a 49th minute lead, with Michael Ngoo equalising 17 minutes later.

Hearts were reduced to 10 men 13 minutes from the end of normal time, losing Scott Robinson to a red card.

But Caley were unable to take advantage and Butcher said: "We had enough chances to win two or three games but we didn't take them and it's not like us.

"It's an unusual feeling because we haven't lost for ages.

"It still hurts though. I think a fire extinguisher went missing off the wall when I came in. I don't like losing.

"I said to the players I don't want to have this feeling again for the rest of the season.

"We have had a right kick in the privates and we have to bounce back.

"We just have to move on and make sure we come back even stronger and more positive."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
