Wayne Lineker gives an update after knee replacement in 2021

Wayne Lineker is keen to make amends with his big brother Gary Lineker ahead of his milestone birthday next week.

The Ibiza club owner, 59, and Gary, 61, have become estranged in recent years – with Wayne previously blaming their strained relationship on the retired footballer’s ex-wife Danielle Bux.

But taking to Instagram on Thursday, Wayne appeared ready to step down — and hand the Match of the Day host a public olive branch.

Wayne posted two snaps of himself alongside his older sibling – one as an adult and a throwback picture of the brothers as children – telling his 844,000 followers that life is too short to fight, along with a public plea to Gary attend his 60th birthday party.

“If there was one person in the world I would love to surprise @obeachibiza at my 60th birthday party next week it would be this man,” the father-of-four captioned the pictures of him and Gary.

“I don’t think it’s too difficult to find out that we’re not as close as we were [sad-face emoji] #lifestooshort #brothers.”

The post touched the hearts of the star’s followers – many commented and tagged Gary’s Instagram account under the update.

“I really hope he makes your birthday wish come true, Wayne,” former EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook told the Ibiza native on Thursday, with former footballer Jimmy Bullard jokingly adding, “It’s pressure.”

Alex Reid – one of Katie Price’s ex-husbands – instead focused on how the estranged siblings grew old in similar ways.

“None of you guys have aged,” the former MMA fighter explained beneath the two snaps. “Just a little more grey! The Linekers have great genetics! What is your secret?”

Wayne has previously claimed his rift with Gary began in 2008 when the sports channel started showing Danielle Bux, who we married the following year – and eventually divorced his second wife in 2016.

“In my opinion, Danielle cost me my relationship with my brother. Unfortunately, Gary is no longer a part of my life,” Wayne said The sun in April 2015.

He went on to claim that after an awkward first meeting with his brother’s then-boyfriend, their communication ended — eventually fizzled out.

The Ibiza legend famously didn’t attend his brother’s second wedding in 2009

“They came to Ibiza in August 2008 and it was really uncomfortable. I didn’t radio with Danielle and our relationship was cold,” Wayne recalled in 2015.

The brothers were previously close – Wayne even acted as Gary’s best man when he tied the knot with ex-wife Michelle Cockayne in 1986.

But the owner of O Beach Ibiza wasn’t part of the wedding party when Gary walked down the aisle again in 2009 to exchange vows with Danielle.

The club owner declined to attend after being told his then-girlfriend, model Ana Tanaka, was not invited just months before the big day.

By 2017, the brothers had started speaking again — albeit briefly and awkwardly — and Wayne even posted a heartwarming tribute to Gary on his 60th birthday in November 2021.

“We’re talking now. We’re not like we were years and years ago, but we speak more now,” Wayne told The Sunday Mirror.

“We’re slowly getting there. It is important. He’s my brother. We were so close.

Gary has yet to publicly accept – or decline – Wayne’s invitation to Ibiza for his 60th birthday next week.

The father of four has not commented on his relationship with his younger brother.
