Former footballer Vinnie Jones says that he has been praying daily for Paul Gascoigne to battle his alcohol addiction.

Former professional footballer Vinnie Jones has revealed that he has been praying daily for England legend Paul Gascoigne.

The 45-year-old has been admitted to a rehab facility in the United States in order to help battle alcoholism following a recent public appearance in Northampton where the ex-Tottenham Hotspur midfielder struggled to string words together while on stage.

"Everyone is a million per cent behind trying to look after one of our crown jewels," Jones told The Sun. "I've been praying for him every day. I am going to go and see him in Arizona. I want to let him get to a better level before I do."

The likes of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, retired professional Gary Lineker and TV host Piers Morgan are among those that are thought to have financially contributed to Gascoigne's treatment.
