Solskjaer was dismissed after United's 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday, with the Red Devils having won just one of their last seven Premier League games.

United's recent run of poor results and underwhelming performances has seen them drop to eighth in the table - 12 points off league leaders Chelsea.

The 48-year-old has attracted criticism in recent weeks, with former players and ex-team-mates calling for his sacking prior to the weekend's result.

However, one person that was keen to thank Solskjaer for the job he did while in the hot-seat was UFC star McGregor.

Although it is unclear who exactly the Notorious supports, he does have an obvious interest in United, leading him to give a 'major shout out' to 'living legend' Solskjaer.

The Irishman said: "I want to give a major shout out, and a huge thank you to the living legend that is Ole Gunnar Solskjær! Ole you are forever, Sir! Icon! Inspiration! Hero! Legend! Thank you Ole @ManUtd".

After his dismissal from the club was confirmed, Solskjaer revealed how proud he is to have managed the Red Devils, insisting it was a 'dream' come true.

United confirmed that first-team coach Michael Carrick would be taking charge of the club on a temporary basis, with this first test coming against Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
