McClean was sent off in the 2-1 defeat for an awful tackle on Cherries defender Adam Smith.
Smith went onto score a vital goal in the win, but Crooks felt he was lucky to be on the pitch at all, describing the taclke in his BBC column as 'shocking.'
He went on to criticise the Republic of Ireland international responsible for the challenge: "It's the second time I've seen McClean unceremoniously crash into an opponent without any due care or attention and he really needs to have a serious word with himself.
"He's a good player and Tony Pulis needs him on the pitch and not on the sidelines. He's no use to anyone there."
Striker Salomon Rondon was also sent off during the fixture, for a headbutt in injury time.
Both players will serve three match bans, missing games against Swansea City, Newcastle United, and Stoke City.
Bournemouth have now won three games in a row and have moved clear of the relegation zone into 14th place, where they are just one point and one position now behind West Brom.
