West Brom's James McClean warned by FA over celebrations

WEST Brom's James McClean has been given a warning by the Football Association following his controversial post-match celebrations in front of visiting Sunderland fans at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

He escaped a fine and potential suspension for his antics, which sparked anger among fans of his former club – some of whom were singing anti-IRA songs – and Sunderland players after West Brom’s 1-0 win.

Both clubs have been reminded of their responsibilities.

Following the match, West Brom manager Tony Pulis said that did not see the incident but insisted he would study the evidence.

“I didn’t see what happened as I was already in the dressing room but I will look at it again and if I think James was out of order we will deal with it,” he said.
