Paul Gascogine has challenged Snoop Dogg to a ‘Cannabis vs Booze’ boxing match to end their feud once and for all.
The England legend has been firing back at the rapper, who posted pictures of Gascoigne on Instagram which were designed to highlight the effects of alcohol abuse compared to smoking cannabis.
Gascoigne tweeted a picture of a dog edited to look like the American rapper with two plaits and a chain around its neck, along with the words: “Morning @SnoopDogg get your lazy a*** out of bed it’s walkies time woof woof you ugly t*** LOVE GAZZA xxx.”
The 52-year-old then posted a hilarious video of himself pretending to smoke, while saying: “Snoop, Snoopy Dogg, woof, I’m coming for ya”.
And now, during an appearance on Good Morning Britain, the former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder has come up with the perfect way to end the bizarre feud.
He said: “I was in Spain, doing a couple of charity events and I said to Shane on the way back on the plane ‘I might get some decent press’.
“But when I landed my Twitter page went mad. I thought ‘what’s happening?’
“When I found it was Snoop Dogg I thought ‘why me’? That happened six years ago’.”
Joking about Piers Morgan’s reputation in the States, he told the host: “You’re famous in America and now so am I.”
He added: “To come from Snoop Dogg, I’m a fan of his as well. I can’t believe it.
“I’ll do a charity boxing match with him – cannabis vs booze, bring it on. I’ll take him in the ring – I’ve been working hard, working out as usual.
