You played with Paul Gascoigne in the England squad. From a fellow players’ perspective, just how good was he?

He was exceptional. Gazza was the best player that I played with. At the peak of his powers, he could do absolutely anything that he wanted with a football.

I was in awe and amazement at his footballing ability. If he didn’t have the problems he had away from the game then I think we’d be talking about him being one of the true greats of the game.
