Liam Gallagher has continued his very public war of words with older brother Noel by branding him a c*** on social media.
The outspoken singer, estranged from Noel following the implosion of former band Oasis in 2009, posted the four-letter insult on Wednesday as his brother celebrated the 10-year anniversary of his solo career.
In a short black and white video posted on his official Twitter account, Noel, 53, holds up a handwritten sign bearing the message: ‘Ask me anything about the last 10 years.’
War of words: Noel Gallagher was branded a c*** by brother Liam on Wednesday while inviting fans to ask him questions ahead of his 10th anniversary as a solo artist
The post, an open invitation for fans to get their questions answered by the singer-songwriter, came as Noel reflected on his post-Oasis career under the solo moniker Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
Promptly responding to the invite, Liam replied: ‘Why you such a massive c***?’
The reply sparked an inevitable reaction from fans, with one commenting: ‘And this is why Oasis will never get back. It’s fine tho.’
A second added: ‘Liam!! Think of your poor old mam! Her heart will be breaking.’
Responding, the singer quipped: ‘She asked me to ask him.’
Here we go… again: Liam couldn’t resist hitting out at his brother after spotting the post, with fans quickly getting involved in the spat
Noel and Liam have been trading insults ever since Oasis split at their final concert in Paris in 2009 after a backstage bust-up.
The duo quickly went their separate ways when the band disbanded and their infamous decade-long feud has been running ever since.
In the aftermath of their split, Liam set up a new band, Beady Eye with former Oasis members Andy Bell, Gem Archer and Chris Sharrock.

Moving on: Noel went solo under the name Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, in 2011. Greatest hits album Back the Way We Came: Vol. 1 will be released in June
The band released two albums, Different Gear Still Speeding and BE, before disbanding in 2014 amid lukewarm sales, persuading Liam to embark on a solo career.
Noel also went solo under the name Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, in 2011. Greatest hits album Back the Way We Came: Vol. 1 will be released in June.
The musician recently revealed that plans for a new Oasis compilation album and accompanying bonus disc of unreleased material have ‘been scrapped.’
Noel had hoped to capitalise on the band’s enduring popularity by releasing a compilation of hits recorded during their arguably less popular second era, from 2000 to their eventual split.

Not happening: Plans for a new Oasis compilation album has ‘been scrapped’ after feuding Noel and Liam failed to agree on the project’s direction
The album was expected to follow the 2020 release of Don’t Stop…, a previously unheard acoustic demo recorded by Noel in the mid-2000s.
He told The Sun: ‘You know that Don’t Stop demo we put up? We had planned to do an Oasis best of the 2000s because it’s a period of Oasis that the masses are not interested in but for the actual fans there’s some great tunes.
‘With Don’t Stop it was like, “Well people are f***ing floundering, put that out, the fans will love it”. Well, we did this best of and the bonus disc was gonna be all these unreleased songs.

‘But, ha, unfortunately we couldn’t agree on something and it got dropped by the wayside.’
The band, originally formed by Liam in 1991, established themselves as one of the most significant indie bands of the 1990s following the release of debut album Definitely, Maybe in 1994.
Second album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? – released the following year – became the second-fastest selling album in British history behind Michael Jackson’s Bad with 345,000 copies sold in its first week, a record at time.

After replacing two-members in 2000, the new look group went on to release albums Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants, Heathen Chemistry, Don’t Believe The Truth and Dig Out Your Soul over the course of the ensuing decade before finally disbanding.
Noel, who hasn’t spoken to brother Liam since their acrimonious split, recently admitted he stumbled across a treasure trove of unreleased Oasis material while rooting around at home, including covers of tracks originally recorded by The Beatles.
He told Record Collector: ‘There was this box in the cupboard under the stairs with all these blank CDs in.

‘I went, “Right, today I’m going to f***ing take that”. I’m putting on these CDs and I found a load of old Oasis stuff, like songs I’d never recorded but demoed. I’m going, “No f***ing way”.
‘There’s a great version of Eleanor Rigby, a punk version, and an amazing version of It’s All Too Much we did on the day George [Harrison] died. Johnny Marr’s on it.
‘I’d forgotten all about it. It was just the backing track. Liam hadn’t gotten round to doing the vocals.’
