Gary Locke not dwelling on Jamie Hamill red card as Hearts are defeated
Manager not making excuses and claims "it's not the end of the world" for bottom club.
Hearts manager Gary Locke backed Jamie Hamill after the defender was red carded for incident that saw a shot clearly his him in the face.
John Beaton, who refereed the 2-0 victory for Inverness over the capital club, believed the strike had hit Hamill’s hand and sent for the former Killmarnock player for an early bath.
Locke was disappointed with the decision but said he did not want to dwell on the incident.
The ex-Jambos captain said: “I spoke to Jamie Hamill after the game and he said the ball hit him on the head, but when I spoke to the referee, he said it was handball.
"It's a difficult one, but I don't really want to make too much of it as I don't want to make any excuses.
"Inverness were really good and twice caught us in the first half on the counter attack.
"You are going to get these days.
“We've had a great few weeks where we've not really had many setbacks, so it's not the end of the world."
