Noel Gallagher Left Bloodied And Needing Stitches After Being Headbutted By Ruben Dias' Dad In Manchester City Limbs

Oasis legend and staunch Manchester City fan Noel Gallagher had an eventful day at the Etihad Stadium as he watched his team win a fourth Premier League title in five years in dramatic fashion.

2-0 down at home to Aston Villa, City scored three goals in five minutes to pip Liverpool to the title by a single point on the final day.


Substitute Ilkay Gundogan was the hero, scoring twice either side of a fine finish from Rodri.

Gundogan's second goal brought some serious limbs as the Etihad absolutely erupted in celebration.

And it was even pandemonium in the private boxes as Gallagher was accidentally smashed into by Ruben Dias' dad.

Joao Dias headbutted the 54-year-old, who was knocked to the floor and ended up with a cut lip and two black eyes that required treatment.

“Let me tell you what happened to me yesterday,” Gallagher told talkSPORT this morning.

“As the third goal goes in, there is absolute bedlam in the stadium.

“Where we sit, Ruben Dias’ family are a couple of boxes up. I’m jumping around like an idiot, passing my son around like the Premier League trophy, everyone’s lifting him up.

“I turn around, Ruben Dias’ dad runs straight into me, headbutts me, I’m on the floor, covered in blood.

“I don’t see the last two minutes, I’ve got to get taken down by St John’s Ambulance to get stitched up.

“I’ve got stitches in my top lip, two black eyes."

Manager Pep Guardiola immediately burst into tears after the final whistle and he embraced Gallagher before asking what had happened to him.

"As I’m going down the corridor, Pep is running up crying and we hug each other," Gallagher continued.

“He says, ‘What’s up with your face?’ And I said, ‘Go and be with your players!'

“If you saw me today, I look like I’ve just arrived home from the eighties at Elland Road, I look like I’ve had my head smashed in. It’s unbelievable.

“Lots of City fans are asking me what happened and I’m just saying, ‘You’ll never guess’.

“There’s not a mark on him [Dias’ dad]. He’s a big bear of a man. He almost knocked my teeth out.

“I’ve got rehearsals today, but the good thing about that is I’ve got three Liverpool fans in my band!”

Noel's younger brother Liam, meanwhile, spent his Sunday evening beefing with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher in a heated Twitter spat.
