"Stop pouting man," urged one, while another questioned, "What’s that f***ing weird pout about brother?"

But others jumped to his defence, insisting, "Leave him to its f***ing Gazza! He can do what he wants. Bloody legend mun."

It comes just days after British Transport Police confirmed that the 51-year-old had bee charged with sexual assault following an alleged incident on a train from York to Durham.

The soccer star – who denies any wrong-doing – was arrested at Durham station on August 20, with a spokesperson for the force confirming, "A man is due to appear in court next month charged in connection with the sexual assault of a woman on board a train from York to Durham.

"Paul Gascoigne, of Leicester, was charged via postal requisition with one count of sexual assault by touching, contrary to Section 3 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

"The charge relates to an incident on board a train on August 20 this year."

Gazza, however, denied the allegation in a since-deleted tweet, writing, "I respect all women".
