Former Dublin footballer Charlie Redmond has fired back at remarks made by former Donegal manager Jim McGuinness in relation to recent events in the Dublin camp.
The former Donegal manager urged Jim Gavin to retract remarks made in defense of Diarmuid Connolly.
McGuinness says Gavin brought the game into disrepute.
On the back of the hammering of Westmeath, Dubs' boss Jim Gavin refused to speak to the broadcast media in interview form and Redmond supports Gavin's decision.
"I'm 100% behind him and hope he continues the ban on giving RTÉ any interviews.
"Now Jim (Gavin) is a bigger man than me and he will decide enough is enough and give an interview after the game but whatever Jim decides, he'll do it for the betterment of Dublin and not because somebody has coerced him or forced his hand. Jim will do what he believes is right, and whatever he does will be right."
McGuinness, now coaching in China led Donegal to an All-Ireland title in 2012, and came out firing over Jim Gavin's decision not to talk to the media, stating it was solely to create a sense of togetherness and fraternity among the Dublin squad.
Gavin denied this and Redmond blasted the former Donegal All-Ireland winning player and manager.
"Whatever Jim McGuinness says, I just completely disregard because that man brought gaelic games to the depths that it has never seen previously."
"He himself actually chastised one of the great players of Donegal, Kevin Cassidy and threw him off the panel for an interview and a very past remarkable interview that he gave to somebody.
"So that man's standing with me... he has none."
The Erins Isle club man, who bagged a famous goal for the Dubs back in the 1995 All Ireland final against Tyrone feels that the current Dublin manager is simply standing up for his players.
"Jim Gavin has stood up for his player, in a way that Jim McGuinness never did or never could do, because there's a bit, there's a huge amount of loyalty within this Dublin team.
"When somebody wrongs a Dublin player, and the Dublin people believe that Diarmuid Connolly was wronged, they are going to stand up and they are going to fight for him.
"And they're going to fight tooth and nail to make sure that player is represented. And these players are fighting tooth and nail to give Diarmuid Connolly a chance to get back to Croke Park, albeit in a semi-final or a final if we can get there."
"They want Diarmuid Connolly to go onto Croke Park at some stage in this championship season and that's their goal."
