Vinnie Jones praying for embattled Paul Gascoigne
Vinnie Jones is praying for his one-time pitch rival Paul Gascoigne as he embarks on his road to recovery from substance addiction.
Gascoigne has battled drink and drug problems over the years and enrolled in a treatment facility in Arizona earlier this month, in a desperate bid to kick his addictions for good.
Snatch star Jones and celebrity friends, including newsman Piers Morgan and DJ Chris Evans, have contributed to the former England player's £7,500 a week clinic bill, and the movie hardman insists that all of Gascoigne's friends and fans are cheering Gazza on.
He tells The Sun, "Everyone is a million per cent behind trying to look after one of our crown jewels. I've been praying for him every day. I'm going to go and see him in Arizona (but) I want to let him get to a better level before I do."
