Paul Gascoigne: Accused of 'insidious' racism

Paul Gascoigne’s nomination for the Scottish Football Hall of Fame has been withdrawn, organisers have confirmed.

The former Rangers and England star was set to be inducted at a dinner on October 21.

But following reports that a number of the Scottish Football Association’s board members were set to snub the event in relation to concerns over Gascogine’s suitability for the honour, the Scottish Football Hall of Fame now say his nomination will not proceed.

A statement read: “Further to consultation with the Chair and members of the Scottish Football Hall of Fame committee, due to a number of factors including ongoing enquiries, and concerns over the state of Paul’s health, it has been decided to withdraw the nomination of Paul Gascoigne at this time from this year’s nomination process.”
