  • Stoke City’s James Mc Clean will not wear a poppy on his shirt

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

The Republic of Ireland global does not wear a poppy on his Stoke City jersey, seemingly enraging the individuals in question.

"Your abuse, your throwing things, your booing, do your worst".

'Huddersfield away a year ago while playing West Brom where there was an incident which [sic] 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.

"If it was a person's skin colour or if it was anti-Muslim, someone's gender, there would be an uproar and it would be taken in a completely different way and dealt with in a different manner".

McClean was held back by stewards as he made his way for the tunnel following the stalemate, with angry Middlesbrough supporters being held back by police inside the ground. To the home fans that are actually educated and support me, thank you.

They will also investigate any reports of racist or sectarian chanting.

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

"As a club we will be supporting the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal by wearing the poppy on our home shirt in the fixture against Middlesbrough on 3 November and on our away shirt in the fixture against Nottingham Forest on 10 November". James McClean, like anyone, has every right to choose to or not to do what he likes; that's what our forefathers fought for.

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.

"I find it very hard to condone people singing political songs at football but, again, it's a democratic society".

In the aftermath of the match against Hearts, Lennon said: "You call it sectarianism here in Scotland, I call it racism".

McClean is from Derry in Northern Ireland and grew up on the Creggan estate were six of the people who were killed on Bloody Sunday came from.

In a statement issued by the club, he said: "I know many people won't agree with my decision or even attempt to gain an understanding of why I don't wear a poppy".
