‘Ball-grabber’ Jones reveals praying daily for ‘ailing’ Gascoigne

London, Feb 20: Footballer-turned-actor Vinnie Jones has said that he prayed for his friend and former footballer Paul Gascoigne every day, and added that he planned to visit Gazza in the Arizona rehab clinic where he is having treatment for alcoholism.

Jones, who was once famously photographed grabbing Gascoigne’s genitals during a match, is among the celebrity friends of the ex-Tottenham Hotspurs player, who have contributed in paying for Gascoigne’s treatment and stay at the 7,500 pounds-a week clinic, the Sun reports.

Jones, who is currently acting in a US drama serial Elementary, termed the former English midfielder as one of the crown jewels, said that most of Gascoigne’s friends are lagging behind in trying to look after him.

He added that he wanted that Gascoigne has a marked improvement from his current form, before he saw him at Arizona. (ANI)
