Beady Eye's Liam Gallagher has had a go at Wayne Rooney's hair transplant.

"I'm not having it," he tells The Telegraph "He looks like a fucking balloon with a fucking Weetabix crushed on top. He's better off as a skinhead, isn't he?"

Speaking about his ongoing fued with brother Noel, he said: "My mum told us we ought to chill out after that suing thing. I went, 'All right, cool'. I can't talk to him, but I've never hated him. He's doing his thing and I'll do mine. But I did enjoy our little spats - since we called a truce the world's just boring. It's been hell. We need to get the party started again!"

Earlier this week, Liam dedicated a track to his brother Noel and his 'High Flying Smurfs' onstage in Japan during Beady Eye's headline set at Fuji Rock Festival in Naeba.

Mocking his older brother, whose band High Flying Birds took the headline slot the following night, Liam Gallagher played two Oasis tracks - dedicating 'Rock N Roll Star' to "the one and only Mr Noel Gallagher," and 'Morning Glory' to "The High Flying Smurfs."

The following night (July 28), Noel Gallagher headlined Fuji Rock, kicking off with Oasis track 'Mucky Fingers' and following with a set largely consisting of songs from his debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'.

Speaking previously about appearing at the festival alongside his brother, Noel said that the pair couldn't have played on the same day.

Asked if they would ever be on a live bill together, he said: "I don't think either camp would allow it. What happens if we're on the same bill? People start asking if we're reforming, that's what. Or they'll ask if we're going to get on stage together and sing 'Digsy's fucking Dinner'."

It has been reported that Liam will perform a rendition of Oasis classic 'Wonderwall' at the Olympics Games closing ceremony with Beady Eye. Sources claimed that the chance to sing the track was originally offered to Noel, but the guitarist turned the offer down.
