"Going 2-0 down to Celtic we could have let the heads drop and collapsed so it became five or six," said the 23-year old left-back.
"So credit to the lads because we kept at it. I don't think we were disgraced or embarrassed here.
"The goals we lost were very sloppy, they should not have been conceded.
"But we deserve credit for the way we kept playing and could have scored ourselves.
"But we are very disappointed because when you get to a final you are here to win.
"We started the game really well, but conceded two really poor goals.
"You can't do that against the champions because it makes life so difficult for you.
"We had chances of our own and kept the ball well at times, but we just lost to the better side on the day."
