The former Oasis rocker believes that the facilities, which were opened to help cope with patients amid the coronavirus pandemic, should welcome the homeless over the festive season.

Liam wrote on Twitter: "If those nightingale hospitals are just sitting there doing nothing give em to the homeless you snides c'mon you know. (sic)"

Meanwhile, the 48-year-old musician recently likened his brother and rival Noel Gallagher to the famously miserable football manager Arsene Wenger and suggested that he was more akin to fellow manager Jose Mourinho as he likes "having a craic".

Liam and Noel have been feuding since Oasis split up in 2009 and the 'All You're Dreaming Of' hitmaker suggested that his brother is "a bit po-faced".

He said: “He’s a bit Arsene Wenger, I’m a bit Jose Mourinho. I like having a craic.

“That Noel he’s a bit po-faced. It’s not complicated in my neck of the woods. I think he’d want written apologies and Milk Trays.”

Liam accepts some responsibility for his disputes with Noel but feels his brother is equally to blame.

He explained: "We're both the problem and the problem is that he thinks he's not the problem. He thinks I'm both the problems. He needs to take on some of the problem. The minute he does that, we'll move on.”

The former Beady Eye frontman also suggested that the pair could resolve their differenced by competing on the TV baking competition, 'The Great British Bake Off'.

Comic Jon Richardson suggested the pair could go on TV show 'Gogglebox' together but Liam replied: "Maybe the 'Bake Off'.

"Maybe we'll just bake some bread and that, or a cake, or throw strawberries at each other. Have a cream fight. That kind of stuff. Now you're talking.”
