Liam Gallagher has told his brother Noel Gallagher to leave the ''1D kids alone'' after he branded Zayn Malik a ''f***ing idiot'' for quitting the boy band.

The 42-year-old rocker has taken to Twitter to defend Zayn following his older sibling's mocking tirade in Rolling Stone magazine about his desire to walk away from One Direction to be a ''normal 22 year old''.

Liam blasted Noel, 47, by making a series of puns based on the Pink Floyd song 'Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2)'.

In several tweets, he wrote: ''Hey NG leave those 1d kids alone LG x ... Just coz you have a SAXAPHONE on your new record and you think your all Pink Floyd LG x ... Everybody knows your just another Pr**k in the wall LG x (sic)''

The 'Songbird' hitmaker then addressed Noel's assessment in the magazine of the Oasis reunion ''agreement'' rumour, in which he claimed it was Liam or his girlfriend Debbie Gwyther who had started it.

Noel told Rolling Stone: ''There was a rumour last week that we've had a gentleman's agreement [to reform the band], but that rumour's come from his people. It's a 'source close to him', and I'll tell you how close it is - she probably wakes up with him every morning. It's always left to me in an interview to let the kids down. People say, 'You're breaking these kids' hearts.' Well, what the f**k, man?''

Liam has now tweeted in response: ''Re oasis rumours you know I don't bum the press never had never will you know where I am if you need me LG x (sic)''

Shortly followed by: ''Me and my adorable close source are living the vida Loca in the SHUNSINE LG x (sic)''

Liam also posted a more cryptic tweet, which read: ''While ive been hybernating Ive been gathering my Wings LG x (sic)''
