Ally McCoist says Paul Gascoigne broke into his house at 3am to make a sandwich

Rangers legend Ally McCoist revealed how former team-mate Paul Gascoigne once broke into his house at 3am – just to make a sandwich.

The forward played with the former Tottenham and Lazio man at the Ibrox for three years from 1995 to 1998.

Gazza formed a close bond with the Scot as he scored 39 goals for the Scottish Premiership side over three years.

While the 53-year-old was an icon for his goal-hunting ability, he was also known for his antics off the pitch which included pranking team-mates.

Speaking on A League of Their Own, McCoist said: “He lived in the next village to me.

“There was never ever a dull moment.

“I was lying on my bed at three in the morning and my wife nudged me, saying ‘there’s someone downstairs’.

“You wouldn’t wish it on anybody.

“I picked up a golf club. The wife said ‘where are you going with that’, and I said ‘downstairs’.

“It was a three-iron and she said ‘you’ve never hit a three-iron in your life’.

“I got downstairs and kicked the door open, running in.

“All I can see is Paul Gascoigne in my fridge! He’s in the fridge and doesn’t even turn around, at three in the morning.

“I said ‘Paul’, he said ‘what’ and I asked ‘what are you doing’.

“He said ‘I’m making myself a sandwich’, as if I’m some sort of idiot!”

The studio was left in stitches at McCoist’s story before the audience bursts into applause.

Gazza’s pranks took a strange turn during his time at Everton, when he signed his autographs on loaves on bread after filming an episode of A Question of Sport.
