"He is a dream," Gibson said after the match.
"His temperament is fantastic. You could put him in anywhere and he's just getting on with it.
"He's a good guy, a good player, and he will look to take his chance, because he's worked hard for a long time. He had a series of struggles last season as a left-back, which is not his natural position, and did really well.
"He has not been given that much playing time, so it is a huge opportunity for him, and he will take it in stride."
