Noel Gallagher has said that he is "interested" in working with Damon Albarn but refuted claims Oasis will reform in 2014 and headline Glastonbury.

Gallagher spoke about his friendship with the Blur frontman, as well as the future of Oasis, while at this year's GQ Awards where he collected an Icon prize. He told The Sun that he is up for working with Albarn but there is no chance fans will see him back with brother Liam and Oasis next year.

The Sun reports Gallagher responded with a firm "no" when asked if Oasis were reuniting in 2014 and that he added there is no chance of the band playing Glastonbury. However, his friendship with Albarn may move in a musical direction with Gallagher adding: "I like Damon and would be interested in working in something."

As previously reported, Noel aimed a jibe at Foreign Secretary William Hague from the stage at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London on Tuesday night (September 4). Appearing on stage to collect his Icon prize, Gallagher told the audience: "Welcome to the Tory party conference, by the way. Nice to see the Foreign Secretary here with all the shit going on in the world that he should be sorting out. Good for you."

Gallagher was presented with the Icon prize at last night's GQ Men Of The Year Awards, where other winners included Arctic Monkeys, Lou Reed, Elton John and The Who's Roger Daltrey.
