Football - Fenlon slams Hibs display

Hibernian boss Pat Fenlon was angry with his side's display as their slim chance of achieving a top-six finish were thwarted by a 3-0 defeat to champions-elect Celtic.

To stand any chance of finishing in the top-half of the table the visitors had to win but were comfortably seen off by a Kris Commons double and a goal from Mikael Lustig.

The limp display left Fenlon fuming and he threatened his underperforming players with being axed for next week's William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final against Falkirk at Hampden.

"I don't think there is too many who came off the park who can have a moan if they are not in the team next week," he said.

"It gives me a lot to think about because that performance is not good enough. We had three or four who had pass marks, the rest didn't do enough.

"So it is a big week for people in training now. If they want to get into the semi-final team they are going to work tremendously hard to do that because I didn't see that from some of them.

"We didn't show enough commitment or have the belief that we could give ourselves a chance to get into the top-six.

"There was maybe a bit of acceptance rather than a desire to give ourselves a fighting chance and that is more disappointing than anything."
