Footage has been unearthed revealing MMA superstar Conor McGregor nailing his colours to the Merseyside mast.

The 29-year-old was filmed hanging out of a black car topless, proclaiming “I’m red… f*** Everton” before departing, much to the delight of bystanders.
With McGregor in training for his huge boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather next month, it is likely the exchange was filmed at an earlier date.
The Dublin-born athlete caused a stir during a recent visit to Liverpool for the Grand National in April, flying into the city by private jet before performing in Mansion nightclub later that Saturday evening.
