Gascoigne back in PrioryAugust 27th, 2008 - 1:40 pm ICT by ANI
London, Aug 27 (ANI): Troubled football legend Paul Gascoigne is back in rehab center after his infamous Iron Maiden booze bender.
The ex-England star returned to the Priory after falling off the wagon on the band’’s European tour, The Sun reported.
But pals last night revealed that Gazza was sober and has told them that he is determined not to let his family down again.
The football legend is being treated for drinking and depression at the clinic in Roehampton, south-west London.
One friend said: It’’s a great relief to everyone he is getting treatment.
Gazzas last stint in rehab - which cost 100,000 pound ended in disaster. He rowed with ex-wife Sheryl, 42, and flew off on tour with old pals Iron Maiden.
When he turned up with the heavy metal legends in Hungary, two weeks ago, he could barely walk, needed help lighting a cigarette, and slept through the gig.
He then spent 72 hours holed up in his hotel room.
The band left him there in the care of roadies as they jetted to their next show in Holland.
Gazzas dad John managed to convince his son to return home for treatment.
His depression started at Christmas when he had a new hip fitted and was told he would never kick a ball again. (ANI)
