Feuding Liam Gallagher shocked fans with another rant at his big brother Noel who stole the show at the benefit concert to mark the reopening of Manchester Arena.

Noel Gallagher had urged revellers to "keep on singing, because then we win" at the emotional climax of last night's star-studded show, before leading the 14,000 crowd in a rendition of Don't Look Back in Anger, adopted as an anthem to the city's spirit in the wake of the outrage.

But Liam re-opened their long standing, acrimonious feud with a foul-mouthed tirade against his brother on Twitter on Saturday night.

He wrote: "Don't buy into his PR stunt he doesn't give a f*** if the same thing had have gone of in Edinburgh he'd been up there like a shot ahem."

He added: "NG broke down in tears cmon you seriously ain't buying that he doesn't give a f***."

Many fans then tweeted support for Noel and criticised Liam for his outburst.

One fan responded: "That's harsh don't say that... your brother is a good person I think" while Ryan Curran tweeted: "Poor form pal" and another, Ayranne wrote: "Love you Liam! But you have to... Get over it..."

Fans at the concert had hoped the former Oasis band mates might put their differences behind them and surprise everyone by re-uniting for the event in their home city.

Money raised will go towards paying for a permanent memorial to the 22 murdered on May 22.

The Mancunian brothers, whose rowing led to Oasis' split back in 2009, have not played together since and have instead concentrated on their solo careers.

Liam had performed at the We Love Manchester concert at Old Trafford cricket ground organised by Ariana Grande after the bombing in June.

He had been playing at a festival in Nuremberg, Germany earlier in the day but arrived by private jet in time for a special guest performance.

He later tweeted another foul-mouthed rant at his brother for missing that gig.
