Fallon urges Aberdeen teammates to take a look in the mirror after Scottish Cup loss

Rory Fallon wants his Aberdeen teammates to have a good look at themselves in the mirror following Saturday's Scottish Cup semi-final loss.

The Dons were beaten 2-1 by Hibernian to be denied a place in the May 19 final despite New Zealand striker Fallon's 25-yard wonder volley which leveled the scores just before the hour-mark.

But Aberdeen conceded an easy late goal to Leigh Griffiths, prompting Fallon to ask some questions of his Dons mates who missed out on the chance to take on Heart of Midlothian in the decider.

"I know I didn't let them down," Fallon said.

"But some of the boys have to look at themselves in the mirror today and ask 'Did I give 100 per cent?'

"I gave 100 per cent - that's all I can do. I don't feel like I've let anyone down.

"Of course, you win and lose as a team.

"The players will go home and evaluate their own game. It is the only way you'll get better. It's about reacting when you're under pressure - and a lot of boys can learn from this performance.

"When the pressure is on you must have a bit of steel.

"The boys have a lot to learn about stuff like that in big, important games."
