Marcel Seip and Paul Sturrock reignited their row after the on-loan defender scored the first goal of Blackpool's 2-0 victory over Plymouth.
The Dutchman was placed on the transfer list by Argyle boss Sturrock after the pair clashed and having being given permission to play against his employers, Seip marked his debut with the opening goal for the Seasiders.
Seip powered home a header in the 31st minute before David Vaughan added a second in the 64th minute as the hosts rose to fifth in the Coca-Cola Championship.
Sturrock brushed Seip's effort aside, saying: "I don't really care who scored. Seip has put himself in the shop window and I suppose that is good for him because I want him to move on."
But Seip hit back, saying: "I am delighted to have scored. I was training on my own at Plymouth. I will never play for that man again and he will never pick me.
"Yes, we have had a big fallout but Blackpool have given me a chance and I want to take it."
The Seasiders remain unbeaten at home and manager Ian Holloway said: "I wish we could play here every week. I was very pleased with the performance and pleased for Marcel.
"We looked a good team and I could bring an international off the bench in Neil Eardley and no one has been able to say that about a Blackpool side for a long time".
Sturrock added: "I am not using it as a total excuse but we were 10 and a half hours on a bus on Friday. It really showed the journey took its toll and we let down our following support. In the first half we were second to everything but improved slightly in the second."
It was Blackpool's domination in midfield which tipped the balance.
Wales international Vaughan and Scotland's Charlie Adam dominated proceedings with a classy show of passing and closing down.
Argyle had just one shot in the first half and Jamie Mackie's fifth-minute effort was comfortably saved by Matt Gilks.
Plymouth can thank a string of fine saves from keeper Romain Larrieu for keeping them in the game, but it was no surprise when Blackpool finally went ahead on 31 minutes when Seip glided home a lovely header from Adam's free kick.
Sturrock changed his formation at the break and the Pilgrims began to be more creative but Blackpool sealed the match on 64 minutes.
A sweeping through ball from Adam was held up well by Bouazza. He found Vaughan on the edge of the penalty area and the midfielder followed up his midweek goal for his country by rifling a drive into the top corner.
