Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne will stand trial for 'racist joke' to guard
The troubled ex-England star is facing yet more challenges as he faces trial in September.
Troubled Paul Gascoigne will stand trial in September after the former England international football star pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to a racially aggravated public order offence.
The 49-year-old, affectionately known as 'Gazza', allegedly made a racist joke about a security guard during An Evening With Gazza show in Wolverhampton, in the Midlands, in November last year.
The former Newcastle, Lazio, Tottenham and Rangers midfielder, who has had a public battle with alcoholism and mental illness, was granted unconditional bail at a magistrates' court until a trial on September 19.
