Liam Gallagher has joked that he would have stepped on his brother Noel if he was present for Manchester City’s title celebrations.
The Oasis frontman endured a topsy-turvy relationship with Noel and opened up about the whim saga and his beloved city in a lengthy chat with Chris Evans on Virgin Radio, ahead of his box office gigs closed next week at Etihad Stadium and Knebworth.
Noel told talkSPORT how he was bloodied as he celebrated Ilkay Gundogan’s winner in City’s 3-2 comeback against Aston Villa last Sunday at the Premier League title-winning Etihad.
The City defender’s father, Ruben Dias, fell directly on him, with an inadvertent headbutt, leaving the musician in need of an ambulance and stitches.
Asked if he saw Noel during last Sunday’s game at the Etihad, Liam Gallagher told Virgin Radio: “No, I don’t go to City games.”
The singer then couldn’t resist teasing his younger brother Noel, saying, “He’s too busy getting headbutted by Dias’ dad!
“Apparently when we scored the third goal and they all went crazy, Ruben Dias’ dad came in and headbutted him. I should have put the boot on too!

Gallagher recently revealed he will embrace a new level of professionalism where he will aim to ‘soften and compose’ but admitted he failed in his mission after City’s recent 2-2 draw at West Ham.
“I was fine until the West Ham game and then I kicked off because we didn’t win it,” he said. “Then the next game against Villa, when we won it.
“You have to have a drink when you win the league. So now I have to pull myself together very quickly.
“I’m happy in a way that we’re not in the Champions League final because the Etihad gig would be canceled and probably Knebworth because I’d still be in Paris to get it.”
The 49-year-old is preparing to kick off a busy summer of touring which will see him perform in the UK, Portugal, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand, but has revealed City are giving him more excitement than any of his musical projects.
“I’m more excited about City winning the league than Knebworth or any of that stuff and the album. Bored! he added.
Gallagher is a regular on Twitter, often posting about his beloved city and had a fun exchange with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher following his club’s title success.
The singer admitted he took a break from the social media platform this week after his busy weekend – but he’ll be back for more if Liverpool lose the Champions League final to Real Madrid on Saturday evening.
“I did not go [Twitter] for a week because I’ve been a bit mean and all the abuse from Liverpool fans so I’m letting them breathe,” he said.
“But if they’re beaten tomorrow night, I’ll be back with a vengeance.
“I want Real Madrid to win for sure. But if Liverpool win, they deserve it, so fair play for them.
When asked if he would watch it, he replied, “No! This Sunday destroyed me so I don’t even look at it.
