West Brom fans react on Twitter to James McClean's antics v Sunderland

The 26-year-old wound up Sunderland fans after West Brom's win over the Black Cats on Saturday afternoon.

It's safe to say James McClean divides opinion wherever he goes.

On Saturday afternoon, he was at it again, antagonising fans of his former club Sunderland after West Brom's 1-0 win over the Black Cats at the Hawthorns.

Going over to the Sunderland fans, McClean fist pumped and made his feelings clear as he celebrated his team's one-goal victory. Supporters reacted angrily, while the opposition players also tussled with the 26-year-old.

But how have West Brom fans reacted?

Naturally, there have been plenty who have condemned the winger. Some didn't mind his celebrations but still don't support the controversial character himself - described by boss Tony Pulis as 'not the sharpest tool in the box.'

However, a number of West Brom supporters backed McClean against his former fans, many of which had been shouting abuse at the winger all game long.

The 1-0 win over Sam Allardyce's men takes West Brom up to 12th, seven points above the Premier League relegation zone - which provides some welcome respite at this early stage in the season. Here's a selection of how the Baggies faithful responded on Twitter to McClean's antics against Sunderland:
