HAMILTON ACCIES defender Michael Devlin has revealed they players are not pressing panic buttons, despite the club dropping to the bottom of the Premiership.
The centre half is adamant Martin Canning’s side can take positives from how they played in the 2-0 defeat to champions-in-waiting Celtic at Parkhead on Saturday.

Inverness Caley Thistle moved above the Lanarkshire club with their 2-1 victory over Rangers in the Highland capital on Friday evening.

Asked if Inverness leapfrogging them was a psychological blow, Devlin replied: “To be honest, not really. It’s probably too early to be looking at the league table.

“Obviously, nobody wants to be bottom of the league at any stage of the season. However, there’s plenty of football and games for us to put that right.

“We need to start picking up points quickly. It doesn’t matter who it’s against, regardless of whether it’s Parkhead, Ibrox, Pittodrie.

“We don’t want to be bottom right now, but I’ll be concerned with the league table come the end of the season.”

Devlin reckoned Accies played well against the Hoops – until Moussa Dembele scored just before half-time.

He said: “Unfortunately, that’s what can happen when you’re playing against the best team in the league with the best players.

“They’re always capable of that moment of brilliance.

“I remember with five minutes of the first-half left trying to gee up the boys trying to go in at half-time 0-0.

“It had gone perfectly up till that point then, with one minute to go, Dembele put it in the top corner. It’s difficult to get your head around it at times and frustrating in the dressing room.

“But at the end of the day you just have to try to bounce back from that. We lost a second goal quite early in the second-half which was disappointing, but there are positives from the performance.”
