James McClean has fired shots at the English FA after once again coming under abuse from QPR fans as they played Stoke City over the weekend.
It wasn’t the first time the Derry-native has been forced to make himself heard following attacks from rival fans and all things considered, it likely won’t be the last.
His Stoke side were involved in a 0-0 draw with QPR at Loftus Road on Saturday and once the ninety minutes were through – one of the main talking-points stemmed from the crowd’s treatment of the Irish international mid-game.
McClean is often on the receiving end of verbal attacks due his decision not to wear a Remembrance Poppy on his shirt.
Taking to his official Twitter page, McClean took a shot at the English FA for their lack of action on this front after the numerous occasions this has happened.
@FA I am going to just start giving abusing back in whatever form I like and you’ll do nothing, just like you’s are are doing everytime this occurs, otherwise that “ for all “ on your logo would look very hypocritical and stupid, thanks hi 👍🏼

QPR made the following statement on the subject of the abuse aimed at McClean shortly after.
“We are aware of a video circulating on social media showing a section of individuals abusing James McClean during our Championship fixture with Stoke City on Saturday 9 March.
“The club wholly condemns such abuse and an internal investigation is now underway as we seek to identify those involved.
“The club will be making no further comment at this time.” (via Irish Examiner)
