Pat Fenlon warned several Hibernian players may have played their way out of his Scottish Cup plans in defeat at Celtic.

Hibs began the day with an outside chance of making the top six ahead of the SPL split, but the visitors went down 3-0 at Celtic Park without ever really threatening to make a game of it.
And Fenlon was less than happy ahead of next week's Scottish Cup semi-final against Falkirk at Hampden.
He said: "I don't think there is too many who came off the park today who can have a moan if they are not in the team next week.
"It gives me a lot to think about because that performance is not good enough. We had three or four who had pass marks, the rest didn't do enough.
"It is a big week for people in training now. If they want to get into the semi-final team they are going to work tremendously hard to do that because I didn't see that from some of them.
"We didn't show enough commitment or have the belief that we could give ourselves a chance to get into the top six.
"There was maybe a bit of acceptance rather than a desire to give ourselves a fighting chance and that is more disappointing than anything."
