Gazza 'back on track' after incident

Ex-England star admits having a bad week

Paul Gascoigne insists he is back on track after suffering a "blip" in a drinking incident at the weekend.

Fears were raised about the 48-year-old's health after photos were published in a national newspaper which saw him with cuts on his face, a beer bottle in his hand and being accompanied by a police officer.

Gazza has fought a long battle with alcoholism, admitting he was glad when he was told he was that at the age of 33, but he believes it is a fitght he is winning.

"I'm not perfect and don't want to be either but I am trying my best always," Gascoigne said on Facebook.

"Thanks so much for all your support. You would think they would leave me alone but it is good sometimes being famous.

"I've done really well for 11 months. I have one blip and I get hammered for it. I am back on track now."

The former Newcastle, Spurs, Lazio and Rangers midfielder denied he was admitted to hospital or rehab after the incident.
