Terminate his contract sharpish... Sunderland fans react to Darron Gibson's Aston Villa display

Sunderland fans look dejected during the Barclays Premier League match between Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur at the Stadium of Light on September 13, 2015 in Sunderland, United Kingdom.

Gibson made his seventh Championship appearance this season in Sunderland's 2-1 defeat at Aston Villa.

New Sunderland manager Chris Coleman recalled Darron Gibson to the Mackems' starting line-up at Aston Villa on Tuesday, after the Irishman was left on the bench for Saturday's draw with Millwall.

And many Sunderland fans are hoping it won't be a regular occurrence, after yet another defeat for their side.

Villa took a two-goal lead against the Championship's bottom side, courtesy of strikes from Albert Adomah and Josh Onomah, before Lewis Grabban flicked home a 72nd-minute consolation.

Despite the result, there were plenty of positives to be taken by Sunderland, who hired Coleman as Simon Grayson's successor at the weekend.

But Gibson, who was replaced by Ethan Robson in the 86th minute, was not one of them - it seems.

Here's what the Sunderland fans are saying about his Aston Villa performance...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gibson moved to Sunderland in January from Everton - reuniting with his former boss David Moyes in doing so.

The 30-year-old has played 22 times since then, but is out of contract at the end of this season.

Are the above assessments fair on Gibson?
