Celtic manager Neil Lennon insists he has no plans to intervene in Scott Brown and El-Hadji Diouf's war of words.
The pair clashed throughout Sunday's 2-2 draw in the Scottish Cup and Brown reacted by celebrating his leveller in front of Diouf.
The on-loan Blackburn man claimed after the game that Brown was trying to provoke a reaction, something the Celtic skipper has swiftly denied.
Lennon is quite happy for Brown to voice his opinion on the matter while he himself is not going to join the debate on Gers' controversial winger.
"I look forward to seeing what he has to say tomorrow - he seems to have a daily column in the paper now," explained Lennon.
"He seemed to have a lot to say for himself after the game but I'll leave the taunts out of it.
"I'll leave Scott to sort that out because he seems to be coping with it very well.
"He can say what he likes about me - I'm not going to get into a war of words with him.
"I never made any specific plans for him either. I had enough to concentrate on with my own team."
