The Gers gaffer is also incensed by pot shots being taken at the club's supporters as they have embraced the cause to follow their team to Peterhead and Berwick.
He said: "The criticism that some players have had for signing for us is absolutely ridiculous. I do respect the vast majority of journalists. You don't always agree with them but you take their opinions on board.
"But it's interesting to note that the vast majority who had a go at David Templeton for coming don't know the club and have never played the game.
"I'm not saying you have to have played the game to know the game. But the point I'm trying to make is if you have played the game at a high level and you do know this club then it is more understandable that these decisions have been made by good players.
"They've been accused of going for the money which is absolute nonsense. Even if it was the case they are quite entitled to do so because in any other profession or walk of life you would look after your family.
"Anyone who would question people coming to this club were perhaps not at the game last Sunday when there were 46,000 reasons to come to this club.
"We are where we are. We said we would accept it. The fans wanted it and the fans got it.
"The support that they have shown this club is absolutely remarkable."
