The former Newcastle United and England midfielder suffered the injury in a game at the stadium involving the club’s staff.

Gascoigne was taken to the nearby Royal Victoria Infirmary for treatment.

Gascoigne – who has been battling alcoholism in recent years – had reportedly been invited to play at St James’s Park by his former Newcastle team-mate Peter Beardsley, now a coach at the club.
