Liam Gallagher has been forced to make a grovelling apology after issuing a death threat to Stefan Savic in a bizarre tweet where he labelled the Atletico Madrid defender a "goofy c***".

The former Oasis frontman posted the tweet a day after Manchester City knocked Atletico out of the Champions League to progress to the semi-finals.

Savic, who played for City briefly back in 2011/12, made the headlines after inciting a brawl between the two sides in the closing stages of the match following an ugly altercation with Phil Foden, before going on to headbutt Raheem Sterling and pull Jack Grealish's hair.

Gallagher, who is a massive City fan, wrote: "Stefan Savic this is a threat if I come across you ya goofy looking C*** your dead MCFC," before deleting the tweet the following morning after a furious backlash.

"We all say things we shouldn’t every now and again I am guilty of that he who without sin fire away ya bumbaclart JC," the 49-year-old wrote on Friday.

A few minutes later he posted again, saying: "I'm really upset and annoyed at myself I feel I’ve let all my fans down by my outlandish behaviour I’m a role model to GROWN UPS hope you can forgive me."

The drama on Wednesday night spilled out into the tunnel after the game amid reports that Savic and Grealish had to be forcefully separated by police.

Bottles were also thrown at City boss Pep Guardiola by angry fans, completely marring what had otherwise been an entertaining night of European football.

The game ended 0-0, meaning City advance to the Champions League semi-finals where they'll face Real Madrid for a place in the final against either Liverpool or Villarreal.
