Rangers v Newcastle - For Gazza?

15 February 2013 01:37
Glasgow Rangers are in talks with Newcastle United to arrange a fund-raising friendly to help alcoholic Paul Gascoigne.

The former Newcastle and Rangers star, 45, is in rehab in the USA for alcoholism.

Football stars have rallied round to try to provide the funds to pay for his treatment. And, in a meeting with the Sydney branch of the Rangers supporters club, Ibrox chief Charles Green revealed he wants to play Newcastle – Gazza’s first club – before the start of next season.

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is also an investor of Rangers and Green has discussed the idea with him.

Green said: “ I will be looking to arrange a game with Newcastle to raise funds to support Gazza – a Rangers and Newcastle legend.”
