Robbie Williams has waged war on Liam Gallagher, claiming that he wants to fight the former Oasis frontman, likening him to a “school bully”.

Back in the ’90s, two of the biggest bands in the UK music scene were undoubtedly Blur and Oasis. Famed for their reign as the kins of Britpop, the tabloids soon found themselves focusing less on the music of Oasis in favour of the contentious relationship between brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher.

However, while Oasis were rising to their peak, English boyband Take That were slowly burning out. Having formed in 1990, the group were known for their chart-topping singles, and the contentious relationship between Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow towards the mid-’90s.

While Williams has previously claimed that an Oasis reunion will be inevitable due what he claims would be the slow decline of the Gallagher brothers’ solo careers, he reignited tensions earlier this month after taking to Twitter to tell Liam to “buy yourself a pair of bollocks”.

Now a new interview with The Sun has seen the former Take That member discussing his former bandmate, and reaffirming his distaste of Liam Gallagher.

“In the past I’ve been obsessed by getting even with people — and Gary [Barlow] was one of them,” Williams claimed. “We had a sibling rivalry. We were the original Liam and Noel.”

As he continued though, Williams claimed that he has a level of respect for Liam Gallagher, but still finds him reprehensible on a personal level.

“As for Liam, I admire him. He is the voice of a generation, the last of a dying breed, as pop stars are so boring these days,” he added. “But I still want to fight him.

“He represents a school bully to me and I would like to take the bully down.”

In related news, Noel Gallagher recently hit out at his younger brother, opening up about the fact that Oasis are unlikely to reform as long as Liam continues to run his mouth on social media.

“He’d put his whole life on hold to get Oasis back together,” the rocker recently explained. “But every tweet he sends out, it’s another nail in the coffin of that idea.

“If you think for one minute I am going to share a stage with you after what you’ve said you are fucking more of a moron than you look.”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are currently supporting U2 on their The Joshua Tree tour, while Liam Gallagher is set to visit Aussie shores next month.
