James McClean uses FIFA16 to expertly troll Rangers fans

Some days we look at James McClean and think he is an intelligent, thoughtful man with deeply-held beliefs. Yes, those beliefs may have got him into hot water on more than one occasion, but at least he stands by his principles.

Other times we look at him and think, “what an absolute s**t-stirrer”.

Yesterday was a big day for many football fans due to the release of computer game FIFA16.

The Republic of Ireland and West Brom player was just as excited as other fans to get stuck into the new edition.

But, James being James, he couldn’t resist the opportunity to wind people up. Rangers fans, to be precise.

“Was looking to play an old firm in #fifa16 but i cant find rangers?” he asked. “Anyone know if there in it?”

Scottish side Rangers had a falling-out with game-makers EA Sports, and don’t feature at all in this year’s edition.

Club fans started a petition to try and get the side, currently playing in Scottish Championship, included but to no avail.

It went down about as well as you'd expect with Rangers fans.

The man does love a controversy.
