Southampton manager Ronald Koeman piled pressure on his old foe by beating United 1-0 on Saturday thanks to Charlie Austin's 87th-minute winner.
A poisonous atmosphere took hold at Old Trafford after the final whistle, with supporters from the Stretford End and South Stand heckling Van Gaal as he walked along the touchline before he disappeared down the tunnel.
Boos also reverberated around the stadium at half-time after United failed to score in the first period of a home match for the 11th consecutive game.
"They are right (to boo). I cannot deny that," Van Gaal said. "I have seen the match also and I cannot deny it but also in better or for worse, you have to stick together."
