Noel Gallagher has compared his brother Liam winning the Godlike Genius award at the VO5 NME Awards 2018 with a third choice goalkeeper being given a medal.
Liam was announced to be the honouree of the title at next year’s ceremony last month. In a video, he said: “I wanna thank the NME for their Godlike Genius award. It’s about fucking time as far as I’m concerned.”
Speaking to the Daily Star, Noel said of his former Oasis bandmate: “You know when a team wins the Premier League and they give the third choice goalkeeper a medal just for being there?
“It’s like, ‘You didn’t do fuck all, right? But you just happened to be there in training, so have this medal.’ That’s what it’s like.”
Noel, who released his latest album ‘Who Built The Moon?‘ with the High Flying Birds last month, picked up the accolade back in 2012. When picking up the award, he said: “I would like to thank NME for bestowing upon me such a great accolade. I have dreamt of this moment since I was 43 years old. I accept that I am now a genius, just like God.”

Yesterday (December 19), Liam suggested the pair had overcome their differences and had made up. The two brothers have been engaged in a very public feud ever since their Britpop band split in 2009. Their beef has escalated in recent months, with both brothers releasing solo albums this year.
However, Liam has now taken to Twitter to suggest that the pair are going to meet up today (December 20) for a festive get-together.
“I wanna say Happy Xmas to team NG it’s been a great year thanks for everything looking forward to seeing you [tomorrow],” he wrote.
