Dundee United manager Peter Houston has hit out at stand-in Celtic boss Neil Lennon and captain Scott Brown following his side's 2-0 defeat.
Lennon was critical of The Terrors' style of play in Sunday's meeting at Tannadice, something that failed to go down well with Houston.
Celtic's manager claimed there was only one team trying to play football, although Houston did not see that in Celtic's play and feels, if anything, it was their opponents who need to brush up their game.
The win for the visitors clinched second spot in the SPL on the day that fierce rivals Rangers secured back-to-back titles following their 1-0 success at Hibs.
"Maybe he should try it more often if that's the case," Houston responded when told that Lennon had said only one side wanted to play football.
"He can come back and talk to me when he's gone 11 games without defeat and reached the Scottish Cup Final.
"I'm proud of my team and the way they play. It's totally wrong to say we didn't play in the right manner."
Houston was also far from happy with Brown's unprofessional antics after the midfielder claimed he had Prince Buaben in his pocket as the sides left the pitch at half-time.
"He (Brown) was at it all day and some of our guys rose to the bait," he continued.
"Brown was telling them he had them in his hip pocket - I could hear him doing it with Prince Buaben as the teams were going off at half-time.
"He's the Celtic captain and a Scotland player. We're all professionals and his conduct has to be better than that."
