Paul Gascoigne Fires Back At Scottish FA Over Hall Of Fame Fiasco

Paul Gascoigne Fires Back At Scottish FA Over Hall Of Fame Fiasco
By Maurice Brosnan

Paul Gascoigne has fired back at the Scottish FA after he was voted into the hall of fame and then subsequently withdrawn from it.

'Gazza' was set to enter the hall of fame but it was revoked. SFA board members were reportedly set to boycott the dinner later this month for the former Rangers man. Organisers explained “a number of factors including ongoing enquiries and concerns over the state of Paul’s health" influenced their decision.

However, Gascoigne took to Twitter and claimed he is unconcerned by the withdrawal of the accolade: "I don’t need to be in The Scottish Hall of Fame to be recognised as one of the best I feel the love & support of the People and know I was the best.”

He then tweeted his goal against Scotland from Euro 96 and said "no hard feelings XXX."

The fiasco was criticised by Gascoigne's former team-mate Ally McCoist, who called organisers "an absolute embarrassment."
