Sunderland have yet to comment on the footage that has surfaced showing Darron Gibson criticising the club and his teammates.
The Republic of Ireland international appeared to be unaware that he was videoed questioning the commitment of his Sunderland team-mates and branding the club ‘fucking shit’.
The tape begins with Sunderland fans critising Gibson for being in a pub after Saturday’s 5-0 home hammering at the hands of Celtic.
The midfielder admitted the team were terrible but insisted he cared about the club when many of his team-mates did not.
“We’re shit. Of course I’m bothered, I don’t want to be shit. There are too many people at the club who don’t give a fuck. You tell me who doesn’t want to be at the club?”
A supporter told Gibson: “You’re off you’re fucking face in here.” He replied: “Right. I might be off my face in here but I still want to play for Sunderland. The rest of them fucking don’t though.”
Told a fan thought he had made no effort against Celtic he said: “Get him here now. I’ll punch his fucking head in.”
