Sunderland winger James McClean reportedly ignores his Twitter ban by sending messages on the website two months after getting booted off.

Sunderland winger James McClean reportedly violated his Twitter ban by returning to the social network website.

The 23-year-old was initially booted off the site for claiming that his favourite song was 'The Broad Black Brimmer' by The Wolfe Tones, which is about a father who is killed while fighting for the IRA.

Despite being issued with the ban two months ago, the winger began sending messages again, and was forced to delete his account once the club had been notified, according to the Daily Mail.

McClean also sparked controversy when he refused to wear a poppy on his shirt for Remembrance Day last year.
