Conor McGregor's solicitor has defended his client's controversial court outfit choice, saying "that’s what he thought was appropriate for the day".
Yesterday the Notorious showed up to a speeding charge hearing wearing a green Adidas tracksuit with white runners.
He had sent his solicitor Graham Kenny to deal with the case on his behalf, but the judge then requested his attendance in person.

Speaking to RTE Liveline, Kenny said that McGregor "didn't intend any disrespect to the court".
“I don’t think anybody advises Conor on his clothing," he told Joe Duffy.
"He considers himself quite a stylish, dapper individual and that’s what he thought was appropriate for the day.
"I mean he is, like I said, a showman."
The solicitor also defended the Crumlin man's Instagram post which showed a picture of his BMW with the hashtag '#relaxjudge'.
"He was very respectful to the judge. He was very respectful to the court,” he added.
