Proper description of response to Kokish Game Try

Yesterday we had an auction going (P) 1 (P) 2 / (P) 2 (alert) (P) 3 (alert) (P) 4.

The opponents didn't ask about the first alert, but did ask about my 3 response which my partner said I would accept a help-suit game try in clubs.

The opponents were upset when the dummy came down with a singleton club, saying that the response to the alert didn't specify shortness.  

What is the proper description of the response to Opener's Kokish Game Try asking where I would accept a help-suit game try? As I understand it, my response only says we don't have 3 quick losers in the suit.  Does one have to spell this out that it could be either strength or shortness?

Thanks
