Mowbray delighted despite defeat
Mowbray was delighted by his team's win
Hibernian manager Tony Mowbray insisted he had no option but to look after his own club, even though their defeat allowed Rangers to snatch the title.

He said: "It was a job done for us. We had to look after our football club and qualify for Europe.

"It's a strange feeling because you want to win football games.

"We weren't chasing the goal as a 1-0 defeat was enough to qualify for Europe because we were aware of the score up at Pittodrie."
