The Reds boss was also asked if his fellow Scot could get involved in any attempts to get transfer business over the line.
"I don't think we have used him for that," he asserted. "This club has ways and means of attracting the top players to the club but if we needed to use Sir Alex he would be more than happy to help, I have no doubt about that."
Moyes feels it may take a little time to completely stamp his own influence on the team as that is always the case when a new man takes over the helm at a club.
"It might take me 18 months to two years to get things changed around," he explained. "I don't know how long Sir Alex thought it took him to get it the way that he wanted it. At a club like Manchester United, I will get the opportunity to do that. There might be other clubs where you wouldn't."
