Earlier this week, McGregor publicly stated his interest in buying Man Utd as backlash to the current owners – the Glazer family – continues to rumble on.

The Notorious tweeted: "A conversation came up regarding Celtic first to be honest. To acquire shares from Dermot Desmond.

"I am certainly interested in acquiring a sports team at some stage! Both Celtic and Man United are teams I like for sure.

"But I am open. I feel I could do big things for a club."

Fans of the Red Devils forced the postponement of their match against Liverpool earlier this month when they broke into the stadium and protested against the Glazers on the Old Trafford pitch.

The game was then re-scheduled for Thursday evening but there was still commotion ahead of the clash when United supporters slashed the tyres of the Liverpool team bus as the players approached the ground.

Meanwhile, McGregor is preparing for his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 on July 10.

The Irishman knocked out Poirier inside one round back in 2014 but was then stopped in the second round of their rematch at the beginning of this year.
