The 45-year-old, who has struggled with alcoholism for years and was sectioned under Britain’s mental health laws in 2008, was taken to hospital last month after being treated at an Arizona rehabilitation clinic at a cost of around $30,000 for a two-month stay.
He found himself at the treatment centre after his agent said the former Tottenham midfielder needed help. “There was no one to blame for my relapse. I was just bored, that’s the worst thing for me but I suppose it was me that made myself bored,” Gascoigne told Sky Sports News.
