Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon admits that Celtic deserved their 3-0 victory over his side in the Scottish Cup final.

Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon has admitted that Celtic deserved their victory over his side in the Scottish Cup final.

Celtic clinched a 3-0 win at Hampden Park on Sunday to secure the double after their triumph in the Scottish Premier League.

"If you lose a cup final you are bitterly disappointed, but I can't fault the players for effort," Fenlon told Sky Sports News.

"We started the game really well and had the best chance early on, but then we gifted them two goals. The better side won the game so no arguments."

Hibernian's previous success in the Scottish Cup came back in 1902.
