James McClean skilfully slapped down Twitter troll Lamina Kone over the weekend but the social media scrap has taken another turn.

Kone claimed to be unaware of the Republic of Ireland winger's identity on Twitter following the nil-all draw between Sunderland and West Brom on Saturday and McClean fired back brilliantly.

The pair could have called it quits there and then but neither were finished yet.



McClean, who was jeered from the moment of his introduction at the Stadium of Light, didn't stop there and had a parting message for Kone and the Black Cats faithful that will make his next visit to Wearside even more hostile.
