Conor McGregor has revealed Kieran Tierney is his favourite football player.
The UFC superstar appeared at an event in Moscow this week to promote his Proper Twelve whiskey.
And he was asked about who his favourite current football player was.
Instead of answering Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or another world class top player, McGregor opted for the surprising choice of Tierney.
It’s some high praise for the former Celtic full-back, who now plays for Arsenal:
Tierney has made no secret of his love for McGregor in the past, sending the fighter one of his match-worn shirts.
McGregor actually wore the shirt while training – and made sure there were pictures of it too.
With McGregor revealing he’d been in contact with Tierney, you’d expect the two will get together in the future – either at a McGregor fight or at the Emirates for an Arsenal game.
