Hibs exacted sweet revenge for their 5-1 thrashing in last year's final with a scrappy 1-0 victory in the fourth round tie at Easter Road.

McGlynn said: "We're all absolutely gutted. We're the holders of the cup and you don't want to lose it.

"We put a lot into the game and so often we've said this this season, we came away with nothing.

"We started the game very well and had a couple of really good opportunities.

"We were in control of the situation at half-time. In the second half, the longer it went it looked like it had 0-0 written all over it.

"We certainly never looked like losing a goal but Hibs got the one break in the game. It's a massive, massive deflection, Jamie MacDonald can't really do anything about it at all."

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.
