Bolton manager Sam Allardyce has told Tal Ben Haim to show more respect to senior players.
The Israel captain was incensed after being berated by team-mate Jay-Jay Okocha, who felt he had become sloppy during the 4-1 defeat of West Ham.
Allardyce told the BBC: 'Tal should have a little bit more respect for a senior player when he comes over to have a word with him.
'But he does tend to get a little bit mouthy at times.
'It shows passion between players but it did not get out of hand, I am glad to say.
'Mike Dean (the referee) quite rightly had a word with him to calm down and get on with it.'
