James McClean may have just worsened his feud with Sunderland fans

It’s probably a good idea to let it go at this point, James.

James McClean sparked a melee following West Brom’s 1-0 win over Sunderland at The Hawthorns. The Derry-born winger had been celebrating the much needed victory, when he turned and fist-pumped in the direction of the away fans.

Some Sunderland players, including Danny Graham and Lee Cattermole, took issue with McClean’s gesture, and Tony Pulis said the player is “not the sharpest tool in the box”.

Well, McClean may have proved his manager right with this tweet, which is bound to bring further backlash from Black Cats’ fans, and more abuse for the player on social media.

Some of the replies to McClean’s tweet aren’t fit to publish, but we bet even the Ireland international had a laugh at this reply.
