Liam Gallagher 'ready' for Oasis reunion

Speaking at the premiere of a new film about the band - the younger brother says they should never have split up.

Liam Gallagher has said he is ready for an Oasis reunion - but will not go "cap in hand" to brother Noel to make it happen.

The band's ex-frontman said that the band should never have split up in 2009 and that his "bags are packed" if the opportunity arises to get the group together again.

He said:

"If it happens tomorrow, I'm ready, my bags are packed. If it happens in a year, I'm still ready, if it happens in 10 years, I'm still ready.

ready, my bags are packed. If it happens in a year, I'm still ready, if it happens in 10 years, I'm still ready.

"But there'll be no cap in the hand and no banjo, you know what I mean? A little f****** skinny, stringy dog outside his house going 'please sir, I need a f****** band, mate.

"If it happens, it happens, if it doesn't, it f****** doesn't, we move on."

Speaking at the launch of Supersonic, a new documentary film about the band, Liam, 44, could not resist a dig at his older brother - who did not attend the screening.

He said:

"He won't be here - he's in one of his really, really, really, big houses, probably eating tofu, while having a f****** face peel, ain't that right, man of the people?"

Wearing his trademark parka jacket, Liam admitted to missing his older brother "without a doubt".

But he also accused him of "ruining" his Oasis career.

"He just wanted to do this thing, there is a lot of angst there. For someone to ruin my Oasis career to further his own, we have got to get past that a little bit."

Supersonic - made by the team behind award-winning documentaries Amy and Senna - charts the formation and rise of Oasis.

Following the group through the early '90s, the film includes commentary from family and unseen archive material.
