Hibs star in brutally honest verdict as 'embarrassing' Aberdeen drubbing sparks fan apology

Gutted Rocky Bushiri admits Hibs defeat to Aberdeen was "embarrassing" as he issued an apology to the fans before the final home game of the season.

The boos rang around Easter Road on Sunday as the Leith outfit suffered a 4-0 battering at the hands of the Dons - with pressure ramping up on boss Nick Montgomery after falling into the bottom six of the Scottish Premiership during a disappointing campaign. The club have only managed four league wins since the middle of December and many punters are calling for change in the dugout with a sit-in protest taking place in a section of the home stands following the 4-0 rout at the hands of Peter Leven's men.

Honest Bushiri admitted to Hibs TV: "It was embarrassing, it wasn't good enough. Especially the way we started the game, on the front foot, we were winning corners and it looked like there was something in there for us today. Then when you concede two goals quickly after each other it starts to become hard."

However, Bushiri was determined to end the season on a high with tributes to Hibs stalwarts Lewis Stevenson and Paul Hanlon set to take place in the final home game of the season against Motherwell. The long-serving duo will leave the club at the end of the campaign after more than 1,150 combined appearances.

Pressed on what went wrong against Aberdeen, he said: 'It's difficult to say. We haven't re-watched the game yet but like I said when you concede goals that quickly after each other it becomes about the mental aspect a bit more. Like, are we mentally strong enough to continue and change the game? It felt like it wasn't there.

"That was very hard. We want to apologise to the fans because we feel like we have let loads of people down. But Wednesday is our last home game. Let's do it for Hibs, let's do it for the badge. Ler's do it for Paul and Stevo, and the fans because it has been a difficult season."
