After the final whistle on Wednesday night, the former Bayern Munich and FC Barcelona manager was seen having a seemingly heated debate with the England international as they walked towards the tunnel.
Guardiola insisted that the discussion between him and Redmond was not an aggressive one, despite how it may have looked on the television.
"I was telling Nathan Redmond how good he is at the end," the City manager told BBC's Match of the Day.
"Southampton have some super talented players, Redmond is so good one against one.
"But they didn't want to play, and they were time-wasting from the ninth minute. I just wanted them to play."
The Spaniard had a similar encounter with Joshua Kimmich, when he was still in charge of the Bavarian club, after a win over Borussia Dortmund in March last year.
