Liam Gallagher has reignited his long-standing war of words with Robbie Williams in a foul-mouthed interview with BBC Radio 5 Live. 

Liam seemed particularly irritated that Robbie had just played the 60,000-seat Etihad stadium, home to the Gallagher brothers' beloved Manchester City football club, while his own band Beady Eye performed at the 1,500-capacity Ritz in Manchester on the same night.

The 40 year-old former Oasis front-man said: "We should be playing the Etihad three nights, not some f***ing fat f***ing idiot. It could be any f***ing clown.I think it's a shame that he's doing three nights and a band like us are doing one night in the Ritz. Poor, mate. It's not about him, it's people in general. But it's about f***ing him, just in case you think I'm scared or something."

Warming to his theme, Gallagher described Beady Eye as a "proper live band", attributing their relative lack of success to the fact that "the bulls**t is winning".

"It's a small gig. Beady Eye ain't a big band," he continued. "Everyone thinks we're going to announce big f***ing stadiums. [The Ritz]'s the level we're at and we'll stay at that until you pull your f***ing finger out and buy the f***ing records."

Liam and Robbie were the best of friends for a short while in the 1990s, and were famously photographed partying together at Glastonbury (above). Things turned sour, however, when Noel Gallagher referred to Robbie as "that fat dancer from Take That", igniting a feud which culminated in Robbie offering out Liam at the Brit Awards in 2000.
