Dundee United manager Csaba Laszlo was delighted that his side played with pride to stop St Mirren winning the title at Tannadice last night.
Laszlo, who was involved in a verbal exchange with Buddies’ goalkeeping coach Jamie Langfield at the final whistle, now hopes they can keep the momentum going for the remainder of the Championship campaign after this 1-0 win.
The Tangerines’ boss, whose side scored early through Billy King, said: “This is a better feeling than after the Dumbarton game, absolutely.
“Generally, I feel the team deserved the three points.
“We have had bad results and I hope this one can now lift the team spirit.
“We need to look at this performance and show the same on Saturday when we play Falkirk.
“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 them next season.”
As for the verbal spat with former Dundee keeper Langfield, Laszlo said: “I think we must be fair to each other and I didn’t talk badly.
“He (St Mirren manager Jack Ross) 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.”
Just minutes earlier, Ross had said of Laszlo: “He said something inappropriate to one of the members of my staff.
“He’s not my cup of tea. What he said to my staff was unacceptable.
“What did he say? You’ll have to ask him – good luck with that.”
