Noel Gallagher is probably Manchester City's most famous supporter, but the Mancunian identifies with Ireland more than his country of birth.

When asked by the BBC about England's hopes at Euro 2024, as he celebrated City's fourth Premier League title in a row at the Etihad Stadium, Gallagher replied: "I'm not an England fan. I'm Irish."


The Oasis star had been speaking in glowing terms about City's success.

"It means we are now out on our own as, you know, the greatest club side in England. No one's done four [titles] in a row. It puts us above Liverpool, Man United, and Arsenal - and much deserved. It's been a great season, and we're not even at our best apparently!"

The 56-year-old was full of praise for Phil Foden, who capped off a brilliant season with two goals as City beat West Ham 3-1 to secure the title.

"When you need an early goal, right?, and you get one and it's one of your own, you know the gods are with you."

The interviewer then asked: "Do you care how he plays for the England in the Euros this summer?"

Gallagher replied: "I'm not an England fan, I'm Irish. Good night."

Gallagher's mother, Peggy, is from Charlestown, Co Mayo, and he has often visited Ireland.
