Paul Gascoigne Returns To Lazio (PICTURES)

Posted: Updated:

Paul Gascoigne made an emotional return to Lazio for their Europa League match with Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday night.


The former England midfielder's lap of honour whipped up the feelings of both sets of fans, as the cult icon of both clubs was paraded before kick-off.


Gascoigne's appearance on the pitch had rekindled memories of a glorious era for Lazio and Spurs, but the tie ended in a goalless draw.


A guest of honour in the Italian capital, Gascoigne would have hoped for the football to do the talking, but the apparent anti-Semitic chanting is another transgression on Lazio's behalf, after they were fined for supporters monkey-chanting during the reverse fixture in September.
