Paul Gascoigne 'Went Drinking With Gaddafi's Sons', Piers Morgan Interview Reveals

Paul Gascoigne once went drinking with Muammar Gaddafi's sons and signed a "bomb" in the dictator's compound, the former England footballer has revealed.

In a television interview with Piers Morgan, Gazza said he got Gaddafi's sons "lamped" during a visit to Libya, when he played for Middlesbrough.

"I went to Libya when I played for Middlesbrough and took Gaddafi's two sons out and got them lamped. I also signed this thing in his compound. I think it was a bomb!"

The Sun reported that Gazza also opened up about his drink and drug addiction - and how he once drank four bottles of whiskey a day.

"At my worst I had 16 lines of coke a day. I was on four bottles of whisky a day for three months. It took two bottles just to stop the shakes."

The 44-year-old is now in rehab.
