Sunderland midfielder Darron Gibson will face an internal disciplinary process after he was filmed criticising his teammates following their 5-0 defeat to Celtic on Saturday, the English Championship club said on Monday.

The 29-year-old has made 12 appearances for Sunderland since joining from Everton in January.

"Darron Gibson has not conducted himself in a manner befitting Sunderland AFC," a club statement said. "We will initiate our internal disciplinary process. Darron has apologised this (Monday) morning."
