Embattled Noel and Liam Gallagher almost cross paths as they BOTH attend Champions League final


Noel and Liam Gallagher came close to crossing paths on Saturday.

The embattled Oasis bothers were both attending the Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto.

While Noel, 54, made a public entrance, estranged sibling Liam, 48, went under the radar – with fans posting snaps of him to Instagram, blowing his cover.

Sporting a simple black jacket and sunglasses, Noel looked the picture of cool, despite the nerves that no doubt were running through him ahead of the all-England match.

Noel paired his black top with a crisp pair of blue trousers as he stepped into the stadium and carried out a number of interviews.

He also spent some time stopping to greet other Manchester City fans and take pictures with them.

Liam, meanwhile, wore a blue windbreaker, often seen with the hood up, and tinted aviator shades.

The result proved disappointing for the brothers – both life-long Manchester City fans, growing up supporting the team as children, with their dad before them a huge supporter of the team.

Both the Gallagher brothers have been regular visitors at Manchester City’s Etihad stadium over the years, with Noel also having been spotted celebrating on the pitch when City won the Premier League title in 2018. 

The final between Manchester City and Chelsea is the latest European competition finale to feature two English teams, with Tottenham and Liverpool recently having faced off against each other in 2019.

And Manchester United also played in an all-English final against Chelsea back in 2008.

Noel’s appearance comes after plans for a new Oasis compilation album and accompanying bonus disc of unreleased material have ‘been scrapped’ after feuding brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher failed to agree on the project’s direction.

The group disbanded in 2009 after a volatile backstage dispute led to guitarist and chief-songwriter Noel announcing he would no longer work with his younger sibling.

But amid growing calls for a reunion Noel hoped to capitalise on the band’s enduring popularity by releasing a compilation of hits recorded during their arguably less popular second era, from 2000 to their eventual split. 

The album was expected to follow the 2020 release of Don’t Stop…, a previously unheard acoustic demo recorded by Noel in the mid-2000s. 

He told The Sun: ‘You know that Don’t Stop demo we put up? We had planned to do an Oasis best of the 2000s because it’s a period of Oasis that the masses are not interested in but for the actual fans there’s some great tunes.

‘With Don’t Stop it was like, “Well people are f***ing floundering, put that out, the fans will love it”. Well, we did this best of and the bonus disc was gonna be all these unreleased songs.

‘But, ha, unfortunately we couldn’t agree on something and it got dropped by the wayside.’
