James McClean Unhappy With Match Of The Day’s Coverage Of Events At Huddersfield

James McClean found himself on the end of a yellow card against Huddersfield yesterday, but has hit out at Match of the Day for not covering the slights against him.

As has become an annual occurrence fro the Irish international, his refusal to wear a poppy for Remembrance Weekend in line with his West Brom teammates 

McClean picked up the booking in the dying minutes of the 1-0 defeat at the John Smith’s Stadium for a bad tackle on Huddersfield winger Thomas Ince, one that was shown in full on BBC’s Match of the Day on Saturday night.

However, McClean took to Twitter soon after to criticise the highlights package for showing that incident but omitting the abuse, both verbal and in the form of physical objects, being thrown frohttp://www.punditarena.com/football/sokeefe/dunleavy-dundalk-tough-cork-citym the crowd in his general direction.

The 28-year-old also took to Instagram to call out the “cowards” in the crowd that threw said objects at him in the match:

McClean will have a much easier time of it next weekend as he sets off with the Ireland squad as they look to book their place in the World Cup with a play-off against Denmark.
