Gazza Soccer Aid

The Rangers, Tottenham and Newcastle legend enjoys his birthday today.

Paul Gascoigne turns 48 today, and to celebrate we take a look at some of his finest moments.

An exceptional footballer, Gazza is seen as one of the players who failed to live up to his potential, despite his incredible career.

Injuries and off-pitch issues clouded his success, and although he was seen as one of the most naturally gifted midfield players of his generation, there is a sense he could have been even better.

Still, he enjoyed a great career with Newcastle, Tottenham and Rangers, as well as spells with Lazio, Middlesbrough and Everton, and he won a credible selection of trophies during his time.

To celebrate the genius that was Gazza, we take a look at five of his best moments, both footballing and otherwise.
