Musician Noel Gallagher was basking in the glory of his team Man City's Premier League success today.

The former Oasis singer was at the Etihad to watch his beloved City defeat West Ham United - and claim a second league in three years.

Former Smiths star Jonny Marr joined Gallagher and thousands of Manchester City supporters at their homeground.

The two guitarists were proudly beaming as their team celebrated.

Gallagher spoke of his delight at the victory and also managed to collect a memento when he spotted City captain Vincent Kompany after the final whistle.

“I know Vinnie well and I spotted him in the tunnel,” he told Sky Sports.

“I said ‘here, give me your armband’ and he did.”

“It will be going up on eBay later,” he joked.
