Paul Gascoigne's management company has confirmed that the former Newcastle, Middlesbrough and England football star is in rehab once again.
The troubled star was recently in hospital where he was treated for multiple injuries, following a disturbance at a hotel in London, in which he plunged down a flight of stairs.
Witnesses said that he was drunk at the time and had been shouting abuse at people.
Last year the former Tottenham star was said to be devastated at the death of his 22-year-old nephew Jay Kerrigan-Gascoigne, who was suffering from a long-running battle with mental health illness.
He was found dead in his girlfriend's apartment in Gateshead.
Today, A1 Sporting Speakers posted the following message on Facebook:
"Paul wants to let everyone know that he has gone into rehab. We have spent nearly every day helping him through his annus horribulus since Jay [Paul Gascoigne's nephew] passed away. He is making a serious effort to get free of his demons and trying to become alcohol free for 2017. I'm not religious at all but if any of you are, say a prayer for him."
