Gascoigne hits back at SFA

PAUL Gascoigne has hit back at the Scottish Football Association and insisted he does not need to be in the Scottish Football Hall of Fame to know he was “the best.”

The former Rangers midfielder was recently voted into the Hall of Fame only for his induction to be cancelled amid reports that some SFA board members were planning to boycott the dinner later this month.

Gascoigne wrote on Twitter: “I don’t need to be in The Scottish Hall of Fame to be be recognised as one of the best.I feel the love and support of the people and know I was the best.”

The former England midfielder also directed footage of his Euro’ 96 goal against Scotland to the SFA’s official Twitter account with the message: “NO HARD FEELINGS xxxx.”

Gascoigne became the first footballer to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award in 1990, since World Cup winning captain Bobby Moore in 1966.- Sportinglife
