James McClean corrects BT commentator after 'British Isles' tweet

Question James McClean's Irishness at your peril.
The winger's nationalism has caused some controversy in the past and McClean wears his patriotism proudly on the pitch.
BT commentator Ian Darke remarked on Twitter about the number of players in the Crystal Palace v West Brom match from the 'British Isles', a phrasing that McClean chose to correct him on.
McClean will leave West Brom to join up with the Ireland squad this week as they prepare to face Germany in Dublin on Thursday and a trip to Poland on Sunday.

17 Of 22 starters were British Isles players at Palace today. Probably a PL record this season.— Ian Darke (@IanDarke) October 3, 2015
