Liam Gallagher has branded his brother Noel a "sad f***" for not appearing on stage with him at the One Love Manchester concert on Sunday nights.

Fans had been hoping for an Oasis reunion when Liam made a surprise appearance and sang Live Forever in tribute to the 22 people who were killed in the MEN Arena attack, but Noel did not appear.

Liam was instead joined by Coldplay's Chris Martin on stage for the performance and Liam also sang Rock 'n' Roll Star and his own single, Wall of Glass, to the 60,000 strong crowd.

Taking to Twitter following the performance, he wrote, "What an amazing night last night pure love vibrations nobody comes close to Manchester love forever... Oh and if anybody's seen rkid tell him he can come out now as you were LG."

He said he was "very disappointed" by Noel's no show.

He apologised to fans for his brother's absence.

He then addressed Noel's excuse of being out of the country:

When a fan said, "That's the reunion out the window then haha," Liam replied, "F*** the reunion mate it ain't about Oasis it's about people trying to help other people an d he's once again shown his true f***ing colours."

One Love reportedly raised more than £2 million in three hours for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

Although fans were delighted with the surprise appearance, there was some disappointment Noel Gallagher had not joined his brother for a full Oasis reunion.

Shelagh added: “Family should united at this time !!! Brothers should have come together,” while @Donkiel wrote: “@ArianaGrande what a show, respect young lady! Pity #oasis couldn’t put aside their issues for the night it was.”
