James McClean quotes Bobby Sands as he hits back at 'uneducated cavemen'

The Stoke Sentinel report that the Championship club will this week look into the treatment of McClean by supporters at the bet365 Stadium, as well as the winger's response on social media.

It's believed that small groups of home and away fans booed the Republic of Ireland global for refusing to wear a poppy.

Posting another message on social media on Monday, McClean said: "The FA are investigating me after Saturday's event - for what, exactly?"

McClean continued: "Huddersfield away previous year while playing for West Brom where there was an incident with their fans which was on the game highlights where the cameras clearly caught it, yet the FA when complaint was made to them said there "was not enough evidence".

Regarding the mention of Neil Lennon in the Instagram post, the former Celtic manager recently said that that he "may reconsider" his position as Hibernian manager following an incident in which he was struck in the face by a coin in the closing moments of a recent derby against Hearts.

'If it was a persons skin colour, of it was anti muslim, someones (sic) gender they would be an (sic) complete uproar and it would taking in a complete different way and dealt with in a different manner.

Stewards were forced to intervene on the full-time whistle, when objects were reportedly thrown in McClean's direction.

A number of Stoke fans also targeted McClean during the weekend game.

Angela Smith, chairwoman of Stoke fans' council, has been asked to speak with chief executive Tony Scholes.

Late on Saturday night, McClean, who was also booed by some home fans, responded by quoting IRA man and MP Bobby Sands who died on hunger strike in 1981. His club would only say he made the decision for "personal reasons" which the club respected.

"My parents and my grandparents fought in wars to give people the right to have free speech".

McClean had confirmed earlier in the week he would not wear a poppy, a decision he has made every year - and been abused for - since first moving to England to join Sunderland in 2011. "If people chant about racism or sectarianism that should not and will not be tolerated".

The 29-year-old Republic of Ireland International was born in Derry, where in 1972 British Soldiers killed 14 civilian protestors on "Bloody Sunday".
