Noel Gallagher has threatened to pull out all the hairs from ex-Manchester United full-back Gary Neville’s moustache with his teeth.
The former Oasis man made the threat after he discovered that Neville had written on his Twitter page, Twitter.com/GNev2: “‘While we’re living the dreams we have as children fade away’. Not if you support United!”. The first half of the tweet is a lyric from ‘Fade Away’, one of the B-sides to Oasis’ ‘Cigarettes & Alcohol’ single.
When alerted to this, Gallagher responded in typically forthright fashion last night (May 10), telling The Sun: “I feel violated. If Mr Neville continues to use the holy scriptures of Oasis to communicate with the Cockney massive, I shall be forced to come up to Cheshire in the middle of the night and break into his house.”
He continued: “I will then tie him to a chair, make him listen to the ‘Best Of Simply Red’ while I pull his tash out one grey hair at a time (with my teeth), liberate those Oasis CDs and shit in his manbag. You have been warned!”
This isn’t the first time Neville and Gallagher have enjoyed a bit of banter. The defender once sent Gallagher a guitar over for him to sign, only for it to come back with the words “Happy Birthday knobhead. MCFC” written on it.
God knows what Liam would have said he’d posted something from ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’.
