The former Oasis bandmates’ bitter sibling rivalry has become infamous since the legendary Britpop group split after a backstage bust-up between the brothers at what turned out to be their final concert at Rock En Seine festival in Paris in 2009.
Noel, 56, walked out on the Some Might Say hitmakers because he couldn’t take Liam’s allegedly hostile behaviour towards him, but his brother insists they were both as bad as each other and that is ‘what made Oasis what it was’.
Now, Liam has branded his arch-nemesis a ‘soft c***’, comparing him to Ronan – who must be wondering what he did to deserve the dig.
He added: ‘I wasn’t any different, but all of a sudden, he’s turned into Ronan Keating or some soft c***, going: “We can’t have that behaviour.” ‘

Liam cannot understand how Noel has a problem with him but will have former Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan as a support act for his solo shows with his High Flying Birds after he was ousted from the Club Foot band after he assaulted his now-spouse, Vikki Ager.
‘And yet you won’t get back in a band with me because I’m a “f***ing c***”?! Eh, chill out, mate,’ he ranted.
Liam insisted Noel not only destroyed his life but those behind the scenes who lost their jobs when he ‘pulled the plug’ on the Wonderwall group.
‘[It was an] absolute nightmare … I was sitting at home with no management, no office, and no one to really speak to, while Noel was still walking into his big management office having everyone running around after him, getting smart and dissing people,’ he said.

‘Looking back with hindsight, you can go: “You’re a big boy” and all that, but when you’ve had all that stuff for 20 years … I could barely tie my shoelace let alone run my business or my life.
‘All that support was taken away, but little Noely G had it all still there.’
He added: ‘If you want to do your little thing because you’re not getting enough attention, feel free, mate. I’ll go to Barbados and sit on a beach for six months, but don’t be pulling the plug on the band. That’s the way I saw it…’
