TROUBLED football legend Paul Gascoigne is believed to be back in a Boscombe rehab centre as his public battle against drink and drugs continues.

It is only six days since the 43-year-old was threatened with jail after admitting driving while more than four times over the limit.

But since then there have been further claims that he has taken part in a binge which left him unconscious and in trouble with the police again, this time for cocaine possession.

National newspaper reports claim the ex-England star is back with the Providence Project in a last-ditch attempt to turn his life around.

The star took part in an alcohol rehabilitation programme with the project during the summer and founder Steve Spiegel has spoken recently about his fears for the star’s future.

After Gazza was charged with drink driving, Mr Spiegel urged him to return to Bournemouth to take part in a longer treatment programme. He told the Daily Echo: “Some people, like Paul, need longer treatment than others because there are so many outside influences which prevent them from concentrating on what is really important.”

It is claimed that Gascoigne was driven to Boscombe over the weekend by worried friends.

Gazza, a former star of Spurs and Newcastle, has been in and out of rehab since he stopped playing football in 2004.

He first visited the Providence Project days after he tried to take food and drink to gunman Raoul Moat during his stand-off with police in Rothbury, Northumberland.

No one at the Providence Project was available for comment.
