Benchwarmers dives into the mad world of ex-footballer Paul Gascoigne with some crazy stories revealed about the Englishman.
Courtesy of the Upshot on Twitter, some of Gascoigne’s craziest moments have been revealed and they will shock you…
We head back to 1985 and a 17-year old Gascoigne has just helped his boyhood club Newcastle United win the FA Youth Cup.
The midfielder and his team mates were busy celebrating in the dressing room before they were visited by Watford chairman Elton John who came to congratulate his club’s opponents.
The singer will have been shocked to see an undressed Gascoigne jump out of the bath shouting “Elton, give us a song!“. Whether Elton belted out a tune at Gascoigne’s request, we highly doubt it.
Thirteen years later when Gazza was at Rangers, he went on a golf trip with his team mates and decided to put a swan in the back seat of his Range Rover.

How he managed to pick the bird up in the first place, let alone put it in his car is another story but he succeeded, and the bird caused havoc as it attacked Ally McCoist in the back seat as Gazza drove on as if normal service was resumed.
Those are just a couple of mad moments in the life of the England footballer, and you can find the full thread of stories here.
Never change, Gazza!
