Liam Gallagher isn't a fan of Florence Welch - because she has ginger hair.

The former Oasis singer - who is known for his caustic put-downs - doesn't like the Florence and the Machine frontwoman's look or her warbling voice.

Liam quipped: "I'm not having someone with ginger hair making music. I'm not going down that road. I'm sure she's a nice girl, but she sounds like someone's stood on her f***ing foot."

The 'Songbird' singer also doesn't believe there is a current British band good enough to fill the void left by Oasis since their split last August.

He added in an interview with UK radio station XFM: "People are far off being the best band in England or the best band in the world. There are some good bands out there but there's no one claiming that mantle."

Liam is currently working on a new album with his fellow former Oasis bandmates - Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock - and plans to return to the stage with the group in 2010.
