Manchester City fan and Oasis lead guitarist Noel Gallagher says that “Liverpool fans are a bit weird”.
Liverpool top the Premier League table after just three games this season, and already look the most likely side to challenge City for their crown.
City sauntered to the title in record-breaking fashion last season, winning by a margin of 19 points.
But they were beaten three times by Liverpool, twice in the Champions League as they fell at the quarter-final stage.
Gallagher says he “derived as much pleasure” from Liverpool losing the final to Real Madrid in May as he did from City winning the title.
“Liverpool fans are a bit weird,” he told talkSPORT. “They get over-emotional.
“They are like the Queen Mother, Liverpool fans. They think everyone loves them. They are a little bit deluded.
“I have three Liverpool fans in my band who are on stage with me and it is great watching the meltdowns round about March and particularly in the Champions League final.
“We were on stage while it was on and the couple of Liverpool fans, I could see them dying as the game went on, and I must say after they smashed up our team coach in the quarter-final I think I derived as much pleasure from that than I did from us winning the league.”
