He has had enough

James McClean has tweeted a message to the English Football Association after he was abused by Queens Park Rangers’ supporters on Saturday.

A video emerged on social media of the Stoke City winger getting abused during the Championship game at Loftus Road.

McClean stood at the side of the pitch looking perplexed as some supporters screamed and cursed at him.

QPR condemned the fans who abused the Republic of Ireland international on Saturday and said they are seeking to identify those involved.

McClean has since responded to the video on Twitter and sent a message to the FA.

His tweet reads:

“I am going to just start giving abusing back in whatever form I like and you’ll do nothing, just like you’s are doing everytime this occurs, otherwise that ‘for all’ on your logo would look very hypocritical and stupid, thanks hi.”


McClean has been targeted throughout his time in English football due to his decision to not wear the Remembrance Day poppy.

Last November, he hit out that “uneducated cavemen” who abused him during a game with Middlesbrough and thanked those who supported his stance.
