FA warns McClean about bad language on social media in-line poppy


James Mac & amp; Celine Stoke has been warned by the Football Association about using his offensive word on social media, but will not face any further action of the governing body.

The 29-year-old wing criticized "uneducated caves" that abused him for not wearing a poppy on his shirt before continuing to use heresy.

A statement from the FA said: "Stoke City's James McClean was warned by the FA about using his offensive word on social media.

"We are satisfied that the rest of the player's posts do not violate FA regulations, and therefore will not take further disciplinary action.

"The FA adds that any language or discriminatory behavior that are directed at any person or people of nationality or belief, as we understand may be experienced by the player in this case, is unacceptable."

McClean's announcement came after he was involved in an angry confrontation with supporters after he left the field after Saturday's 0-0 eighth draw draw with Middlesbrough.

Earlier on Monday, McLean published again on social media after studying the FA test in his actions, claiming that he, like the director of Hibernian Neil Lennon who was injured in a coin during the Edinburgh derby – was another patient that is Irish Catholic.

He published: "The English interrogate me after the Sabbath event – why exactly?

However, in a week, in the last seven years, I get constant sectarian abuse, death threats, discarded objects, chanting that sounds loud and clear every week where my family, wife and children need to listen; they become blind and not a single word or condemnation of any kind.

"Huddersfield away from last 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, but FA when the complaint was filed to them said there was not enough evidence."

"If it was a person's skin color or if it was anti-Muslim, someone's sex, there would be a fuss and he would go in a completely different way and take care of another.

"But as in the case of Neil Lennon in Scotland, because we are Irish Catholics, they turn a blind eye and nothing is said or done."

In 1995 the Scottish defender Kirk Broadfoot – then Rotherham – was hidden for 10 games by the FA after being charged with directing sectarian abuse in McLean.

The Republic of Ireland International McLean has found himself a destination since his arrival in England in Sunderland in 2011 for refusing to wear a poppy day shirt on his shirt.

It was during his time in Wigan that he described his reasons in an eloquent statement in which he said he would be happy to do so if the symbol only perpetuate the First and Second World Wars and not conflicts since then.

McLean was raised on the estate of Karighan Badri, also the home of six people killed on Bloody Sunday in 1972.

He was not the only player who did not wear a poppy on his shirt this weekend with Manchester United and Serbia international Nemanja Matic also opting against doing so.

Matic said on Instagram: "I fully know why people wear poppies, I fully respect the right of everyone to do so and have absolute sympathy for anyone who lost their loved ones due to conflict.

"However, for me it is just a reminder of the attack I personally felt as a young boy, a 12-year-old who lives in Verlau, when my country was destroyed by the bombing of Serbia in 1999.

"Even though I've done it before, I do not feel right about the reflection now. It's right for me to wear the poppy on my shirt.

"I do not want to undermine the poppy as a symbol of pride within the UK or to hurt anyone.However, we are all a product of our education and this is a personal choice and the reasons described.

"I hope everyone understands my reasons now, when I explained them and I can concentrate on helping the team in the games ahead."
