West Ham United are believed to be looking for a manager to replace Slaven Bilic.
Moyes is currently a heavily odds-on favourite to land the job at West Ham, with Slaven Bilic seemingly heading towards the exit door.
But Ruddock believes that Moyes is now past it as a manager, and West Ham should be looking at Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton instead.
“David Moyes, you’re having a laugh, aren’t you!? I don’t know the man, but seriously what’s he going to do there,” Ruddock questioned.
“He did a great job at Everton and they were disciplined, but I think he’s lost that with his track record over the last three or four years. It’s Chris Hughton for me, absolute nailed on.”
Despite Ruddock’s protestations it seems very likely that Moyes will be given the role as West Ham boss.
Bilic is likely to be dismissed following West Ham’s heavy defeat against Liverpool at the weekend.
Rumours that Moyes is set to take over at the London Stadium have been greeted with derision by many West Ham fans, who feel he is the wrong manager to take charge.
Moyes has failed in his last two jobs at Sunderland and Real Sociedad, and will have a lot to prove if he is given the West Ham job.
