Gary Caldwell has rubbished rumours of a fall-out in the Scotland ranks after Steven Pressley quit his post.
Pressley stepped down less than 24 hours after the announcement was made confirming George Burley would continue in the manager's post.
The news came soon after Scotland failed in their World Cup qualification campaign having lost to Holland last week.
Speculation grew over a rift in the camp due to the dissatisfaction of some players over Pressley's role in the Scotland set-up.
But asked if there were tension between members of the squad and back-room staff, Celtic captain Caldwell said: "No, not at all.
"I don't know how people will look at it but I look upon it as a disappointment.
"He was someone I got on well with, whom I listened to all the time and who I tried to learn from.
"It's just disappointing that he won't be there in future squads."
Suggestions that Pressley was forced into resigning have been circling around the camp, which Caldwell neither confirmed nor denied.
He added: "He was part of the back-room team but, for whatever reason, he has left and I'm sure everyone will be disappointed in that."
