Scholes has been the vocal critic of the Red Devils' boring style of play under the current manager Louis Van Gaal.
"For me, what he (Scholes) said doesn't bother me," said Carrick.
"I have respect for Scholesy and that isn't going to change. It's not an issue really.
"There are so many opinions out there. If you start worrying about what people are saying about you on TV or in the papers, then you are in trouble.
"We know as players what we have to focus on. There is nothing wrong with those comments. People are there to have opinions. That's fine.
"You have to take the rough with the smooth and if you accept the pats on the back, then you have to accept the criticism when it comes."
