Robbie Williams has said his long-time adversary Liam Gallagher's post-Oasis band Beady Eye "weren't very good" - but has also praised his solo career, despite their differences.

In a guest stint on Chris Thrall's Bought the T-Shirt podcast the father-of-four discussed Gallagher, 47, and his brother Noel's success overseas.

The Rock DJ star said Oasis had enjoyed a career in America but that it was "not a massive career" before saying "it's not true" that Noel is "massive" in the US either.

The 46-year-old went on: “Liam did Beady Eye and, to be honest with you, the songs weren’t very good. It’s as simple as that. The idea and concept of that whole thing wasn’t very good.”

Williams did go on to laud Gallagher for his solo success as he added: "He worked with proper songwriters who do that for a living, [people] that craft, verses, choruses, middle eights really really well. He writes a great lyric, he does great melodies and he's a voice of a generation."

The pair have a long history of public animosity toward each other, with Williams famously offering to fight Gallagher at the 2000 Brit Awards while accepting an accolade on stage.

It seems he hasn't put the idea of a brawl with the singer aside either as last year saw Williams say he'd "love" to fight him and that Gallagher was "on [his] list" of enemies.

Although, he did later call it off after a word from his wife Ayda Field.

Acknowledging the "beef" he shares with the musician during the podcast, the Candy hitmaker even praised his "incredible personality" and "charisma". Could a reconciliation be on the cards?
