James McClean was seen furiously arguing and remonstrating with Mansfield supporters during a heated post-match brawl on Saturday after Wrexham’s FA Cup triumph.

Wrexham won 2-1 that night with two goals from Paul Mullin and Sam Dalby, but that didn’t stop McClean from fighting with the home crowd after the game.

In a video that was posted on X, the 34-year-old was seen getting into a brawl with Mansfield supporters and making gestures in their direction as Wrexham officials had to intervene to keep him in control.

McClean was shouting and pointing at the supporters who stood in front of the stands and appeared to be indicating for them to confront him on the pitch.

Staff intervened and the former Premier League star was ushered down the tunnel before anything could happen. It’s unclear what caused the issue between McClean and the supporters.

In the past, McClean’s supporters have made fun of him for refusing to wear a poppies. Because this is Mansfield’s closest home game to Armistice Day on November 11, there was a minute’s silence and the Last Post was performed prior to the game. Nevertheless, there are no signs pointing to the reason of the occurrence.

The FA Cup contest, which Wrexham won 2-1 thanks to goals from Mullin and Dalby, was tarnished by the post-match events. Rhys Oates scored a consolation goal for the home team.

For Phil Parkinson’s team, it was another victory; they haven’t lost since the end of September.

The most recent installment of the popular documentary series ‘Welcome to Wrexham’, which documents the highs and lows of their ownership of the Welsh football side, was made available on streaming platforms at the beginning of the month.

In the documentary, Macaulay Langstaff, a ‘handsome’ striker for Notts County, was begrudgingly told to ‘f**k off’ by his owners, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

Prior to a crucial game against promotion rivals Notts County, they had previously unheard chats in which National League top scorer Langstaff was the object of their resentment.

“Macaulay Langstaff, just f**k off,” McElhenney uttered with candor.

‘Yeah, god that guy is good. He’s handsome as f**k. He looks like he could be in Peaky Blinders,’ Reynolds said in response, with McElhenney concurring that it is ‘bulls**t’.
