Fury as Irish Premier League star turns his back as God Save The Queen is played before West Brom's pre-season friendly in the US

Republic of Ireland footballer James McClean has sparked anger by turning his back on the British national anthem during his club's pre-season tour in the US.

Premier League star McClean was seen to face away from the flag of St George as he stood alongside his West Bromwich Albion team-mates who were lining up to face South Carolina-based United Soccer League club Charleston Battery.

The 26 year old previously refused to wear a poppy on his kit in the run-up to Remembrance Sunday while playing for Sunderland and Wigan Athletic, saying it would have been disrespectful to the 'innocent people who lost their lives in the Troubles'. Source
