Here is my best explanation:

'critical remark' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'stalwart over club' is the wordplay.
'stalwart' becomes 'brick' (I've seen this in other clues).
'over' says to put letters next to each other.
'club' becomes 'bat' (I've seen this before).
'brick'+'bat'='BRICKBAT'

'made by' is the link.
