Republic of Ireland and Stoke City midfielder James McClean has highlighted threats that have been sent to him on social media.

On his Instagram story, McClean shared a direct message which had been sent to him. The message read: "Don't make me set your house on fire and burn everyone inside it."

In a statement on his page, McClean questioned whether anti-Irish abuse was acceptable and added that since he had highlighted the issue, "the silence is deafening".

Miguel Delaney, Chief Football Writer with the Independent, joined us to discuss the issue.
