THE daughter of troubled former football star Paul Gascoigne has thanked well-wishers after he was pictured being put into an ambulance after reportedly being found slumped outside his home.
The ex-Newcastle United, Tottenham, Rangers, Middlesbrough and England player has a long history of problems with alcohol, and yesterday the 47-year-old is said to have been taken away by emergency services from his home in Dorset.
Twitter users sent messages of sympathy and support to his model and reality star daughter Bianca, which she retweeted.
The 27-year-old wrote: “Thank you for your kind words.”
Pictures published today show Gascoigne looking gaunt and almost unrecognisable from his footballing glory days.
Just hours before his latest health scare, it emerged that Gascoigne, born in Dunston, Gateshead, was to make a return to football playing for a Sunday League side.
Now living in Bournemouth, where he has been treated for alcoholism, he was recruited to sign up for Abbey FC in the Hayward Sunday League Division Four by taxi driver and manager Chris Foster.
