Gascoigne To Face Trial Over Alleged Racial Abuse

Ex-England footballer Paul Gascoigne has denied making racist comments in a show at Wolverhampton last year.

The former Newcastle, Tottenham and Rangers midfielder is alleged to have used ''threatening or abusive words'' towards a security guard during 'An Evening With Gazza' show in Wolverhampton in November last year.

Gascoigne pleaded not guilty to the charge during a 20 minute appearance at Dudley Magistrates' Court today, having signed autographs for fans waiting outside. 

The 49-year-old ex-footballer, who lives in Dorset, was granted unconditional bail until a trial on September 19. Several witnesses are expected to give evidence at the trial.
