The team was jeered at Rugby Park last week as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat to Hearts. The reverse followed the disappointment of just missing out on a place in the top six of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
Shiels wants to get back on track against Aberdeen on Saturday and says his players have already put the reaction of angry supporters to the back of their minds. He said: "They haven't been affected at all. It's just one of those things that happens at grounds all over the world. We just want to win matches and that's the priority."
Asked if the boos will spur them on, he added: " Not at all. They won't even remember about that to be honest. It's not in our remit to worry about those kinds of things. We are disappointed after last week and we are trying to build a renewed energy to go and try to get something from Aberdeen."
Shiels believes the Dons have already shown a positive response to the appointment of new boss Derek McInnes with the goalless draw against Hibernian.
He said: "They showed that on Monday night when they got a good point at Easter Road. They had a good energy about them and it was always going to be tough. They are a good team and they've got good players. They will feel as though they warrant that seventh position. It's going to be a tough game for us."
Shiels was quoted as calling Neil Lennon 'paranoid' after the Celtic boss expressed his unhappiness at his players failing to make the shortlist for the PFA Scotland player of the year. Only Victor Wanyama was nominated in the young player category.
As far as Shiels is concerned, he does not pay too much attention to the end of season prizes anyway.
He said: "It doesn't affect me in any way. I don't believe in those awards. The only real awards there are in Scotland are the PFA ones because it's the players. I don't listen to awards.
"It's probably right that there are no Killie players, I'm not disagreeing with that. I think it's a team game and it's about how the team is doing. I just want to try to get my team doing well."
