Sunderland have confirmed that Darron Gibson will indeed face after a video of the midfielder’s drunken diatribe, in which he harshly criticised his teammates, did the rounds on social media over the weekend.
Gibson was filmed while talking to fans in a local bar on Saturday night, a matter of hours after Sunderland’s dismal 5-0 defeat against Celtic at the Stadium of Light.
The 29-year-old Irishman, who appeared to be well greased by that point, branded Sunderland “f**king sh*t” before chastising several individual players – Lamine Kone, Jeremain Lens and Wahbi Khazri – for being work-shy fops, or words to that effect.
The Black Cats have today released a mini-statement to say that Gibson will be punished for his conduct, but didn’t go so far as to spell his name correctly…
Oh well, two out of three ain’t bad.
In fact, somebody should probably write a song about that.
