The Kilmarnock manager's regular bletherings over the course of the campaign must have left great swathes of Ayrshire's donkey population looking for their hind legs but, after this dismal defeat by Hibernian, Shiels was largely subdued in his post match analysis. And no wonder. His players had been equally as timid during the encounter and only really showed glimpses of life when Dean Shiels curled in a free-kick with seven minutes remaining.
