|Michael Carrick has not lost any respect for Paul Scholes despite his withering criticism of Manchester United's performances under Louis van Gaal.|
Scholes, who won 11 league titles during a glittering United career, has become disenchanted with the team's style of play under their current manager.
The former midfielder renewed his attack on Van Gaal on Tuesday night, claiming United had become "boring" to watch under the Dutchman.
"It's just a sideways, possession, boring style of football and you have to say, does he have a problem with forward players?'' the 40-year-old said prior to the 1-0 Champions League win over CSKA Moscow.
Carrick insists the United players must accept criticism - regardless of where it comes from.
And it appears the 34-year-old's relationship with Scholes has not been tarnished by his former team-mate's remarks.
"For me, what he (Scholes) said doesn't bother me," said Carrick, who played alongside Scholes in the United midfield for six years.
"I have respect for Scholesy and that isn't going to change. It's not an issue really.
"There are so many opinions out there. If you start worrying about what people are saying about you on TV or in the papers then you are in trouble.
"We know as players what we have to focus on. There is nothing wrong with those comments. People are there to have opinions. That's fine.
"You have to take the rough with the smooth and if you accept the pats on the back then you have to accept the criticism when it comes."
United supporters also showed signs of dissent, booing when Van Gaal replaced Anthony Martial with Marouane Fellaini in the 66th minute, and it was an edgy night on the whole as the hosts looked set to record their fourth straight 0-0 draw until Wayne Rooney scored the winner 11 minutes from time.
Carrick says the players must learn to play in such a tense atmosphere.
"It's our job to play. That's why we are at this great club," he said.
"If you can't handle it or don't want it then go and play somewhere else. You have to take the rough with the smooth."
