  • Darron Gibson launched an extraordinary attack on Sunderland after their defeat by Celtic

BBC pundit Chris Sutton says Sunderland may look to move Darron Gibson on after the controversy that followed the 5-0 defeat to Celtic.

"Darron has apologised this morning".

Gibson responds by insisting he does care about the club and wants to play well for them, before suggesting that others do not feel the same way. He was then asked if that bothered him, and he replied: "Of course I am (bothered)".

But they are understandably annoyed by his behaviour, which included threatening one Sunderland fan who questioned his performance and why he appeared to have been drinking alcohol after losing to Celtic.

There is too many people at the club who don't give a fuck [Lamine Kone] yes next one, [Jermain Lens] next one, [Wahbi Khazri] next one.

Gibson joined Sunderland from Everton in January 2017 having been restricted to a solitary Football League Cup appearance, but was unable to turn the tide for David Moyes' men who finished bottom of the league. Gibson said in the video, via the Mirror. "You tell me who doesn't want to be at the club?"

He said: "In this day and age everybody knows that everybody has got a camera phone". They'll throw the book at him.

He said: "Poor Simon Grayson, he's got a hard enough job on".

"This is a club that for years, well it's been coming hasn't it". I don't think it's a sackable offence.

Over the course of five tweets, Gray explained how he felt the Republic of Ireland global did nothing wrong, particularly given the fact that Gibson believed the conversation was a private one with supporters.
