Paul Gascoigne is widely regarded as one of the finest football players England has ever produced, but things haven't been easy for him since hanging up his boots.
Alcoholism, drug abuse and public misdemeanours have plagued the 51-year-old in his retirement and his struggles have been sad to see.
He's been on the road to recovery throughout 2018 but in August he had a guest appearance on Soccer AM cut short due to looking drowsy on camera.
It was said to be because of some sleeping tablets Gascoigne had taken the night before, but seeing him slurring his words was worrying nonetheless.
And now, two months on, the former midfielder has suffered yet another blow.
Gascoigne was due to be inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame on October 21 but his nomination has been withdrawn by the organisers.
And why? Due to concerns over his health and after Scottish Football Association (SFA) board members threatened to boycott the event.
JONES: "IT'S ABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL"
The decision has been met by outrage, with Vinnie Jones becoming the latest big name to express anger at the way Gascoigne has been treated.
"I'm absolutely outraged about this," said Jones on talkSPORT. "When Gazza went to Rangers, he lit up Scottish football.
"The SFA were absolutely proud as punch to have a player of Gazza's calibre playing in Scotland. Now, after football if you develop some mental health problems they have got to be addressed.
"Alcoholism is a disease, it's uncontrollable, and Gazza has worked his backside off over the last couple of years to sort those problems out.
"He's on the road to recovery and this is massive kick in the nuts. It's absolutely disgraceful, boys. Disgraceful.
"This is a massive setback for the boy. I haven't spoken to him yet today, but I'm absolutely gutted for him.
"This is something people involved with mental health should get involved in now and have their say, because Gazza developed some problems after football.
"We talk about depression, how's he going to feel now that they've done this? In England, Scotland, for Tottenham and Newcastle - he was the crown prince of football that time.
"Give him the award he deserves and don't knock him for what's happened after football. What happens after football with your mental health has got nothing to do with your contribution on the pitch."
Whatever you think of Gascoigne, he was a phenomenal player during his career and should be judged for that, not what's happened since.
