Gazza sent for support
EX-ENGLAND footballer Paul Gascoigne has been admitted to a treatment centre in the US after celebrity friends intervened to help the star.
TalkSPORT presenter and former England cricketer Ronnie Irani has spoken of how he and Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans, a long-term friend of Gascoigne, organised the Italia 90 and Euro 96 star's flight to the centre in Phoenix, Arizona.
