Cisse was involved in a flare-up with the former England Under-21 captain at Blues' Wast Hills training complex.
But the Senegal captain was adamant that the incident was forgotten about almost as soon as it had happened.
Cisse told the Birmingham Evening Mail: "There was a disagreement, two minutes later we shook hands.
"Sometimes, if somebody receives a bad tackle, they react. The way I tackle, it is with the mentality of a competitor, a winner.
"These things happen all the time on training pitches. They are soon put to the past and forgotten."
Cisse insisted his problems at City were well and truly behind him and he has spelt out his desire to remain at St Andrews.
His second half of last season was wrecked by an ankle injury and then he was transfer listed after reporting back late for pre-season training.
Cisse is adamant that was down to a genuine misunderstanding although he can see why manager Steve Bruce acted in the way he did towards him.
He said: "I want to put all my problems behind me and help Birmingham City. I have two years left on my contract and I want to stay here. My future lies here and I am committed to the cause.
"In the summer I honestly didn't know I had to come in a week earlier. There were communication problems during the summer and I was unable to speak to the club.
"I did not know any different. People can believe me, or not. I know myself that this was down to a genuine misunderstanding.
"With hindsight and if I had been the manager, I would have made the same sanctions. I understand that what happened did not look good, that I let him and the club down.
"But there are no problems now. Things were confused with the communication and to judge me on that alone is wrong."
