Darron Gibson: David Moyes thinks the midfielder needs 'a jab of the whip

The midfielder moved from Manchester United in January 2012 after falling out of favour under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Moyes was happy to sign Gibson but believes the 25-year-old needs to raise the standard of his performances.

"I think he has the ability but there is a bit more to his game that he can offer," he said in the Daily Star.

"He needs to become more influential in games. He needs to take control more. At times he does not take it by the scruff of the neck and become the main man."
