The former Newcastle, Tottenham and Rangers star believes that Rooney is a class player and has a winning mentality.
Gascoigne, who played for Middlesbrough and Everton as well as Newcastle and Spurs, has posted the following message on Twitter ahead of England’s Euro 2016 Group E qualifier against San Marino away from home.
With ENGLAND I wish Rooney all the best to getting more goals not just today but also in the future as the lads class,he wants to win&smile— Paul Gascoigne (@gazza8gascoigne) September 5, 2015
Roy Hodgson’s side will head into the game at the San Marino Stadium in Serravalle placed at the top of the group.
The Three Lions have picked up 18 points from six matches and are as many as six points clear of Switzerland, who are second in Group E at the moment.
Victory over San Marino away from home will guarantee England a place in the Euro 2016 group stage.
Captain Rooney is one short of Sir Bobby Charlton's England scoring record of 49 goals. The former Everton star has scored seven goals in his last eight matches for the Three Lions.
