It's fair to say James McClean is a man who is very proud to pull on the green jersey. The winger has always been very upfront about his love of playing for Ireland and he has now given his rather forthright view on the Jack Grealish situation.
McClean was speaking to BBC Radio Foyle yesterday when he seemed to suggest Grealish was edging away from Ireland in the aftermath of his rejection of Martin O'Neill's attempt to call him up to the squad to face England.
If you don't want to play for a country then you shouldn't play for them.
The Derry native went on to clarify his comments, accepting that it was a very personal decision for someone like Grealish but it did seem like he was hoping to see a bit more desire from the Aston Villa man.
Look, I'm sure the lad will make whatever decision he makes. I love playing for my country and all the rest of the lads do who play there. If anyone doesn't want to play then so be it. Go and play for someone else, that's my view of it.
Addressing his own future meanwhile, McClean refused to be drawn on reports that he was on his way to the MLS but he did say that 'it would be great to play in the Premier League again'. So take from that what you will.
