Paul Shand, Haymarket: "A shocking display from Hearts. There was no fight at all from the team. It was embarrassing watching that. The players should be ashamed of themselves."
Stuart Craig, Polwarth: "It doesn't get much worse than that. We handed the points on a plate to Aberdeen. I am gutted at how we played. They tore us apart. We desperately need signings."
Douglas Maxwell, Haymarket: "There are no positives you can take out of a game like that. We are a complete shambles. The lack of quality throughout the side is evident."
Scott Ernest, Edinburgh: "Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong. From the moment their second goal went in, we capitulated. There was a lack of effort and ability last night."
Bobby McPhail, Muirhouse: "That really hurts. We have let ourselves down badly. Their goalkeeper barely had a save to make. Losing 3-0 at home to Aberdeen is a disgrace."
Darren Goldie, Newcraighall: "The worst performance I've seen from Hearts in a long, long time. The game against St Johnstone on Saturday is absolutely massive for us now because we have a tough fight for a top-six spot."
Alison Bolger, Newington: "We were brought back down to earth with a bump. I think we're a poor side who have had a lot of luck lately and our luck ran out last night. Shocking."
John Anderson, Gilmerton: "Those who were in the side last night are not fit to wear maroon. Not one player deserved any credit out of the match. We were diabolical. I can't say I'm looking forward to the semi-final now."
Alex McGillvray, Colinton: "A miserable night for everyone connected with Hearts. It was all over within ten minutes of the second half. Hopefully, this will open Vladimir Romanov's eyes."
Sam, Kelty: "This current crop of young Hearts players being thrown in at the deep end of the SPL are nowhere near ready physically and, frankly, I don't see a lot of potential stars of the future among them."
Car, Elphinstone: "We were playing okay until useless David Obua returned. Csaba Laszlo can't see past him but he is lazy. What a bad defeat. We need a clear-out. Wee Scott Robinson ran his heart out, as did Mikey Stewart but they were the only two with pass marks."
Michael Knight, Newtongrange: "What a shocking performance from Hearts. The best thing about our team has been our defence and they where walked all over by Aberdeen. Plus, I don't know why Obua gets a game. He is currently the worst player in a maroon jersey – he's not even good enough to clean the boots of a Hearts first-team player. This is one very unhappy Jambo."
