Video: Vinnie Jones Says SFA Snub is a “Massive Kick in the Nuts” for Paul Gascoigne

Vinnie Jones has leapt to the defence of Paul Gascoigne, after the Scottish Football Association decided to withdraw his Hall of Fame nomination yesterday.

The SFA cited “concerns” over Gazza’s health, as they confirmed the glitzy celebratory dinner on October 21 would not longer be taking place.

And it seems the Rangers faithful weren’t alone in feeling outraged by the decision…

Former Wimbledon hard-man come Hollywood actor Jones has since described the snub as a ‘massive kick in the nuts to a man in recovery’.

Jones really went in on the SFA during his interview with talkSPORT, conceding this could be a massive setback for the former Gers midfielder:

Gascoigne may have spent just three eventful years in Glasgow during his playing days, but the midfielder quickly became a hero to the Gers support.

The 51-year-old played a significant role at Rangers, winning two league titles, a Scottish Cup and the League Cup during the club’s dominant spell in the 1990’s.

Since retiring though, Gazza has publicly battled alcoholism and struggled with his mental health.
