Jackson Irvine calls for pride and perspective, despite Hibs' Hampden disappointment
Jackson Irvine has reflected on Hibs’ Scottish Cup final defeat – and says he still feels ‘enormous’ pride in the team's achievements this season.
The Australian midfielder was the second Hibee to tweet out about the weekend loss to St Johnstone after Josh Doig revealed his continued disappointment this morning.
Irvine admitted the aftermath of the Hampden anti-climax and been “tough and emotional” but called for a sense of perspective on the third-placed finish and cup runs this season.
He wrote: “After a tough and emotional couple of days I think it’s important to recognise the achievements of the team this season despite the overwhelming disappointment of Saturday. I wish we were able to give the fans and everyone at the club the day we all so desperately wanted. I am still enormously proud of what we achieved as a group, players and all staff.”
Irvine, along with team-mate Martin Boyle, has been called into the Socceroos’ squad for four World Cup qualifiers next month.
