James McClean tends to divide opinion.

While his dedication and drive simply can’t be doubted, McClean has allowed his passion to drift into overly aggressive challenges on occasion.

West Brom supporters know that their forceful winger is never too far away from a booking but it’s his no-nonsense approach to the game which has earned him plenty of admirers over the years for club and country .

McClean played no part of the Baggies’ 3-2 upset of Liverpool in the FA Cup this weekend.

The Republic of Ireland international was reportedly suffering from the flu but while he may be poorly, it’s clearly done nothing to affect his sense of humour.

Having been linked with a move to Championship side Derby this month, McClean responded brilliantly to one fan who couldn’t wait to see him leave the club.

With reports of Troy Deeney moving to West Brom, it was suggested that could mean McClean was on his way out.

When one troll claimed he’d drive McClean to Pride Park himself to ensure the deal was completed, McClean responded by assuring him that he didn’t need any transport assistance.

McClean has been with West Brom since 2015, scoring five goals in 95 appearances since moving from Wigan.
