That Oasis reunion seems more unlikely than ever given Liam Gallagher's most recent attack on his big brother.

Noel has been traversing the globe on the publicity trail for his new album Chasing Yesterday with High Flying Birds - and taking random pot shots at One Direction members Liam Payne, Harry Styles former member Zayn Malik along the way.

Last week Liam, speaking to London's Capital FM about the band's upcoming album, said, "The boys we've been writing with have come up with some great, great songs that are kind of like a bit Oasis-y almost, which is ace. I love that."

On hearing about this, Noel said, "I cannot wait to hear what they think Oasis-y means."

Noel also took a pop at Liam's bandmate Harry for driving himself to a party.

"He drove a f***ing car and he was like 'I am not drinking.  I am driving.'  F***ing idiot.  What do you mean your'e driving?  What are you driving for?  Have you not got a chauffeur?"

In an interview with Rolling Stone he also had something to say about Zayn leaving One Direction at the tender age of 22.

"Pfft. Who wants to be a normal 22-year-old?!" he laughed.  "Hang on a minute. You can be fucking anything that moves and gettin' paid half a million dollars a week, you fuckin' idiot. You want to be a normal 22-year-old?

"Have you met any normal 22-year-olds? They're fuckin' shit-for-brains. What are you talking about, you fuckin' idiot?"

It seems Liam is unimpressed with his brother's ramblings as he took to Twitter yesterday to spew ire in his general direction.

Having called him "Noel Katie Hopkins Gallagher" he accused him of "talking out of his slack arse again".

He then proceeded to tell him to "leave those 1D kids alone" before tweeting, "Just coz you have a SAXAPHONE on your new record and you think your all Pink Floyd LG x".

Just in case anyone was wondering what he thought, he added, "Everybody knows your just another PRICK in the wall LG x".

NME also came in for a bashing with, "NME just coz I don't take your calls and join your spotty clan give over who's having a MIDLIFE crises now LG x".
