St Mirren boss Jack Ross has hit out at Dundee United gaffer Csaba Laszlo following a touchline bust-up.
The pair were seen to exchange words between the opposing dugouts after the Terrors clinched victory over the Championship leaders.
The Buddies could have become champions but Billy King’s early strike was enough to spoil the party.
A disappointing night was made even worse after the two gaffers almost came to blows after the Tangerines boss appeared to take umbrage at something said in his direction.
However, Jack Ross insisted he had done nothing wrong after Laszlo reported made a comment to goalkeeping coach Jamie Langfield.
Ross commented: “He said something to one of my members of staff which is not appropriate and not my cup of tea.
“There were no words exchanged with me, I just made it clear that what he said to my staff is not acceptable.”
Laszlo replied: “He has to look first at his team. I think we must be fair to each other and I didn’t talk badly. He has to ask his own person what he said.
“He is a young manager with emotion but I don’t think what happened is worth talking about.
“I didn’t say anything inappropriate, what he told me, I told him back.”
On the game, he added: “We showed pride tonight to make sure St Mirren didn’t celebrate winning the league at our stadium. I am fair and wish St Mirren all the best.
“It looks like they will win the league and go into the Premiership. I just hope that maybe we will meet next season.”
