Noel Gallagher threatens to destroy Gary Neville's moustache with his teeth
In one of the more bizarre celebrity spats we’ve heard of, former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has threatened to pull out all of Gary Neville’s moustache hairs with his teeth.
Manchester City-mad Gallagher launched a scathing and hilarious tirade against the recently-retired Manchester United defender after Neville made the mistake of quoting Oasis lyrics on his Twitter page.
After the Red Devils all but clinched their 19th league title by defeating Chelsea on Sunday, Neville – hated by fans of opposing teams as much as he is loved by United supporters, tweeted: “’While we’re living, the dreams we have as children fade away.’ Not if you support United!”
The first line of that tweet comes from ‘Fade Away’ an Oasis song that was a B-side to the popular track ‘Cigarettes and Alcohol’ and the sharp-tongued and quick witted Gallagher didn’t take kindly to having his work plagiarised by the detestable Neville.
He didn't hold back with his response, saying that he would attack Neville’s famously wispy moustache with his teeth and make him listen to the 'best' efforts of awful pop outfit and famous Manchester United fans, Simply Red.
“I feel violated,” retorted Gallagher.
“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, break into his house, tie him to a chair, make him listen to the Best of Simply d(Red)ful 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...”
Incidentally, it’s not the first time Gallagher has delivered a withering put down to the soon to be Sky Sports pundit.
Neville once sent Gallagher a guitar to sign as a birthday present for himself. Gallagher promptly sent it back with a message written in marker pen which read: “Happy Birthday knobhead. MCFC x.”
