London, Sept.18 (ANI): Former England football star Paul Gascoigne tried to enter a local pub at 9.45 in the morning, a day after he came home from a three-week bender in Portugal. According to The Sun, Gazza, 41, was seen hammering on the door of the pub for 20 minutes and even appeared to try to use his own keys to open the front door.
He held a fag in one hand as he peered through a window to attract someones attention and tested a high double gate. When no one appeared he wandered to a local off-licence where he bought a bottle of Famous Grouse whisky. He then phoned for a taxi which took him to his sisters house.
Gazza later went back to the pub, the Metz, in Dunston, Gateshead, where he spent the afternoon playing pool with pals. One onlooker said: It was a terrible thing to see. It wasnt even 10 a.m. and Gazza was trying to go in the pub. He looked desperate to get in but didnt seem to understand it was closed. It was as if he didnt know what time of day it was. It was embarrassing when he tried his own keys in the door. It is such a shame to see him self-destruct like this. He needs to get help and fast. He only returned to England on Tuesday after his trip to Portugal where he was rushed into hospital following a drugs overdose.
At one stage his ex-wife Sheryl, 42, and daughter Bianca, 21, flew out to beg him to quit his binge but were told: F*** off and leave me to die.
He was rushed to casualty one night after a suspected drugs overdose and had his stomach pumped.
He later tried to play down the drama by saying he was getting his hip assessed after breaking it. (ANI)
