Hunt aims blast at Paatelainen

Dundee United striker Noel Hunt was unhappy with Hibernian manager Mixu Paatelainen's behaviour during Sunday's 1-1 draw between the two sides. Hunt was involved in a row with the Finn who was livid when Mark de Vries went down with an injury. Paatelainen wanted the Dutch striker to get up or go off for treatment, much to Hunt's annoyance. "He was getting involved from the sidelines when he didn't need to, de Vries could have been hurt," said Hunt. "It was none of his business. It wasn't even his player and he's not on the pitch himself - his playing days are over. "I don't think we were firing on all cylinders, but we expect to win at home, so it's a wee bit disappointing. "We went 1-0 down against the run of play and it was a great goal from Dean Shiels, but we showed character to claw it back and should have won it."
