McClean barred from Twitter

Published 26/02/2013 | 04:00

SUNDERLAND have ordered James McClean to close his Twitter account again after the Irish midfielder found himself embroiled in another media storm.

The Irish international was criticised by DUP MP Gregory Campbell for tweeting that his favourite song was 'The Broad Black Brimmer', written by Noel Nagle of the Wolfe Tones. Campbell accused the player of making 'contentious' comments because the song details the story of a boy whose father is killed fighting for the IRA.

Sunderland, who were unhappy when McClean recently rejoined the social network, decided that the story was the final straw and told him to delete his account.

McClean initially left Twitter last September after his inappropriate post-match outburst following Ireland's World Cup win in Kazakhstan, in which he revealed that he was "fuming" and referred to his non-involvement as a "joke".

The former Derry City player sparked further controversy when he recently declared that he would never wear a poppy on his Sunderland shirt to mark Remembrance Day.
