Oasis’ Noel Gallagher slams Mick Hucknall after Manchester comment

Noel says Mick’s comments are 'irrelevant'

OasisNoel Gallagher has responded to comments made by Simply Red‘s Mick Hucknall about Manchester, saying his opinion is “irrelevant”.

In an interview Hucknall had referred to comedian Harry Enfield‘s TV sketch in which actress Kathy Burke visits the city, home of Liam and Noel Gallagher, and comes back with a Liam-esque swagger. He suggested that the band had contributed to people holding negative stereotypes of Mancunians.

Noel delivered an open letter to The Sun, slamming Hucknall.

“You still going?” he wrote. “The last time I heard of you, Fanta-pants, you were getting slung out of Knebworth for being shit and fat. What you have to say about Manchester and its righteous natives is irrelevant as you are from Warrington.”

Noel and Liam are set to carry boxer Ricky Hatton’s belts to the ring tonight (November 22) in Las Vegas before he fights Paulie Malignaggi.
