West Ham co-owner Gold: Board gave Moyes guard of honour after defeating Liverpool

West Ham co-owner David Gold says the board room gave manager David Moyes a guard of honour after victory over Liverpool.

The Irons defeated Liverpool 3-2 on Sunday.

"It was fantastic, especially having beaten Manchester United, then we beat Manchester City and we are beginning to think we are a top side," Gold told talkSPORT.

“We are beginning to show that by then beating the mighty Liverpool, who we've looked up to all these years as a great club and we beat them. It was absolutely fantastic."

Gold revealed how he and the West Ham hierarchy showed their appreciation for the Scot after the superb victory over Jurgen Klopp's side.

“He [Moyes] is very easy to work with, proper person and certainly one of the best managers I've worked with in my 27 years in football," said Gold.

“I'm so pleased for him as he's worked so hard. He's had his down days, but seeing him come into the boardroom after the victory yesterday was fantastic.

“He got a guard of honour as he walked into the boardroom. It was fantastic."
