Soccer star-turned-actor Vinnie Jones is praying for his one-time pitch rival Paul Gascoigne as he embarks on his road to recovery from substance addiction.

Gascoigne has battled drink and drug problems over the years and enrolled in a treatment facility in Arizona earlier this month (Feb13), in a desperate bid to kick his addictions for good.

Snatch star Jones and celebrity friends, including newsman Piers Morgan and British DJ Chris Evans, have contributed to the former England player's $11,580 (£7,500) a week clinic bill, and the movie hardman insists that all of Gascoigne's friends and fans are cheering Gazza on.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "Everyone is a million per cent behind trying to look after one of our crown jewels. I've been praying for him every day. I'm going to go and see him in Arizona (but) I want to let him get to a better level before I do."
