James McClean: Being Wigan's player of the season doesn't make up for pain of relegation


IRELAND man James McClean admits that his award as Wigan's player of the year is no consolation for the fact that the club have been relegated.

Rotherham's win over Reading on Tuesday guaranteed relegation, and it's almost certain that McClean will leave Wigan, the Derry man already linked with moves to Celtic, Newcastle and Hull as well as a possible move to the MLS.

"I wish I could be accepting this award in better circumstances for the club but it's still an honour to be recognised by the fans," said McClean after accepting the supporters' player of the year award.

"I hope they can see that every time I put on the Wigan Athletic shirt I give 100% and I'd like to thank them for giving me this award.

"I hope they have something to really cheer about next season."
