St Johnstone boss Derek McInnes felt his side let themselves down badly as they froze in the Hampden snow, losing 2-0 to Rangers.
Walter Smith's men secured their place in the CIS Cup final with the win, leaving McInnes to dream of what might have been.
"Ultimately, it's just a feeling of disappointment," he said.
"There's no real satisfaction in terms of how we played and our approach.
"Maybe I expect too much from us at times and I expect us to be better and defend better.
"Rangers are through because they took a couple of opportunities and they defended better throughout the game."
