Bohemians goalkeeper James Talbot claimed Shamrock Rovers "look down" on the Gypsies and said the Hoops have no "heart" or "passion" after his team earned yet another victory in the Dublin derby.

Talbot did not hold back in an interview with RTÉ Sport's Tony O'Donoghue as he savoured a 2-1 win at Dalymount Park.

Bohs have now won seven and drawn one of the last eight meetings between these old rivals, and Talbot was in no mood to bite his tongue in the aftermath of this latest success.

"It felt as good as ever," he said.

"It's always good to beat them. We don't have much respect for them to say the least. They look down on us, they don't think we're good players.

"Once again we've proven tonight that there's lads on our team that would walk into their team.

"We've got heart, we've got passion, something that I don't think they have. And we can play a bit as well. We're over the moon.

"The lads absolutely dug in. They put in a performance that is going to stick with a few of them. That feeling will never get old."

Reflecting on Bohs' remarkable recent record against Stephen Bradley's men, Talbot added: "I think it's more of a mindset. They look down on us. They think they're better than us. What is it, eight games (unbeaten in this fixture)? I'm not one for stats... but the stats don't lie in that sense!

"There's good players in this team. For them to underestimate us gives the lads the extra edge to go out and perform. 

"We work hard. If someone isn't working hard they're getting their neck pulled in. There's so much good people at this club. It's more than a club this place.

"They were mouthy. Their players were mouthing at each other saying this, that, whatever. That's not a team. That's what we have here. You can't buy that. Money can't buy that."
