PAUL Gascoigne claims he used to touch his England teammate Les Ferdinand’s willy before games for good luck.
Gazza told fans he spotted Les’ manhood in the dressing room and was so impressed with how well-endowed the striker was, he asked if he could have a “hold of that thing”.
Gazza, 50, said he scored and “played a blinder” after the first time so it became a pre-match ritual.
The former Newcastle, Tottenham and Rangers star told the crowd at a charity event: “In the dressing room, Les Ferdinand, I swear down, when he took his clothes off, you should have seen the size of his f***ing c**k.
“He made mine look small.
“I went ‘Les, Les please, please let me have one f***ing hold of that thing’.
“So he let me have a hold of it.
“And I went out played a blinder and scored, right. I thought ‘f***ing brilliant’.
“So the next game at Wembley, ‘Les get it out’.
“And every time we played for England Les went ‘hurry up and get it over with Gazza’.”
The 50-year-old was speaking at an ‘Evening with Gazza’ at Nine Sports Bar in Newcastle.
The charity event was being held to raise money for the Jay Lennon Foundation which was set up in the name of Gazza’s nephew following his death last year.
He spent five years playing alongside QPR, Newcastle and Tottenham striker Les, 50, with England between 1993 and 1998.
They played together in 12 England games and scored five goals between them.
Les could not stop laughing when The Sun asked him about Gazza’s claims.
Chuckling, he said: “That’s absolute nonsense. That never happened – I think he’s away with the fairies on that one.”
Gazza also told of putting an England cap on a cheetah while drunk on safari in South Africa as an FA ambassador.
He told the audience: “On the way to Africa I am f***ing steaming on the f***ing plane.
“I get off, I get to the place.
“They thought, ‘S***, let’s get him out of here. Let’s get him on a safari’.
“I jumped off the lorry and ran over to the cheetah.
“I’m an England ambassador and I’m looking at this cheetah, and I’m pretending I thought it was a puppy.
“I said, ‘Don’t move, you’re not getting fed’.”
“I could see this guy, I didn’t know if he was going to shoot me or the cheetah.
“All of a sudden another cheetah came around.
“F*** me, it went with it’s claw and ripped my f***ing England suit.
“I went back to the f***ing truck and got two England caps and put them on the cheetahs.
“They went, ‘F*** Gazza, get here’. I jumped back in the truck and they said, ‘You know that could have f***ing killed you’.
“I went, ‘F*** that, where are the hippopotamuses?’
“I was supposed to be there a week, they sent me home the next f***ing day.”
Gazza looked fit and well as he joked with the audience on Thursday night.
