London, Oct 2 (ANI): Troubled football star Paul Gascoignes fans are running an Internet sweep on when Gazza will die.

Celtic fans have blitzed a website with bets on how and when the ex-Rangers star will pass away.

The Gazza Death Sweepstake was launched after the England soccer legend - who is battling booze addiction and depression - was pictured hammering on a pub door desperate for an early morning drink, the Daily Star reported.

He was arrested after brawling with a photographer and cautioned for criminal damage after smashing a fans mobile phone.

Hours later sick bloggers opened an Internet book on Celtic fans forum The Huddleboard on how long the 41-year-old former Spurs, Newcastle and Everton star will last.

One member Benedicts11 - who has made over 5,000 postings - sneered: Ill give him three months.” Another called Marty Bhoy added: Ill go for nine months.

While Stevo1888 said: Two hours.

One twisted punter - who uses the name Ayrshire CSC - wrote: On the Queens birthday. They can both go. What a day!

Last night a pal of Gazza said: Its just unbelievable people would do this. He has been through a really difficult time as everyone knows and this is like kicking him when hes down. Paul needs support right now - not sick b*****ds trying to drive him to an early grave. They should all rot in hell. (ANI)
