Paul Gascoigne has cheeky dig at Scottish FA over Hall of Fame snub with famous Euro 96 England goal clip

The Rangers favourite was set to be rewarded for his three scintillating seasons on Ibrox before having his invite rescinded.

Some members from the Scottish FA threatened to boycott the prestigious ceremony if Gazza was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

So Gascoigne, 51, had his own message and aimed a cheeky swipe at organisers.

He uploaded a picture of himself celebrating in a Rangers shirt and in the background is an image of all the players on the club's Hall of Fame.

Alongside the image was the caption: "I played some of the best football in my career at Rangers and loved the support of the fans.

"I don't need to be in the Scottish Hall of Fame to be recognised as one of the best.

"I feel the love and support of the people and know I was the best. Love you all GAZZA xxxx."

Then he would then have one more final say by uploading a clip of his strike and dentist chair celebration and writing: "@ScottishFA No hard feelings."

Fans have launched a petition to reinstate Gascoigne into the Hall of Fame and it has been backed by more than 17,500 people at the time of writing.


The petition, kick-started by Steven Yates, has a target of 25,000 signatures by Thursday night.

Steven said: “The SFA have withdrawn Paul Gascoigne from being entered into the Scottish hall of fame for his contribution to Scottish football.

“The reason behind this, is there are a few board members that boycotted this due to Paul’s current state of health.

“This, being on the week where through sport, we are trying to end the stigma of mental health, and show everyone that we are united in beating this illness and that there is help available to those who need it."
