Manager Pat Fenlon apologised to the Hibernian supporters after watching his side’s drubbing in the Scottish Cup final against Hearts.
Pa Kujabi was sent off in the 5-1 defeat at Hampden as Hibs collapsed in the face of a Hearts onslaught.
“We didn’t turn up, we didn’t shine, we didn’t deserve to win the game,” said Fenlon.
“We didn’t show anything. I apologise to the fans for having to sit and watch that.”
The defeat means Hibs’ drought without a Scottish Cup final victory will now stretch to at least 111 years.
“There’s no desire and we’ve got to change the players to change the outlook of the club.”
James McPake pulled a goal back just before the break after Darren Barr and Rudi Skacel had given Hearts a two-goal lead.
However, Hibs’ hopes were dashed at the start of the second half when Kujabi was adjudged to have fouled Susa in the box.
The Hibs defender was given his marching orders with a second booking and Danny Grainger scored from the spot.
Ryan McGowan’s header and Skacel’s second compounded a miserable afternoon for Hibs in the first all-Edinburgh Scottish Cup final since 1896.
“The club has been like this for a while,” added Fenlon.
“There’s no desire and we’ve got to change the players to change the outlook of the club. We’ll work as hard as we can to turn things around.”
