Ex-Sunderland man James McClean calls out sectarian abuse from 'fans in the Wigan Athletic end'
Former Sunderland attacker James McClean has claimed he received “sectarian abuse” from “a few fans in the Wigan Athletic end” this weekend.
After the game, McClean took to social media and posted this message, aleging abuse from Latics fans: “To shed some light on the situation at half-time today, few vermin (grown men) in the home end decide to go to a game of football to shout sectarian abuse and sing a song that celebrates the death of Catholics all first half at me," he posted on Instagram. "Not regulars by the way, which make their actions more pathetic."
