Hearts winger Saulius Mikoliunas was targeted by St Mirren fans as he made his comeback in a reserves fixture this week.
The 23-year-old Lithuanian, out since sustaining a hamstring problem on international duty last month, made his return in a 70-minute run-out at St Mirren on Tuesday.
Assistant coach Stevie Frail said: "It's nothing like the stick he's going to get - he's aware of that. It's still disappointing that people go on about it, but it's done and dusted. He's not the only one to have done it [dived] and he won't be the last one."
