What is the big thing about Gascoigne and the hall of fame?
He played 3 seasons at rangers THREE!
He got 11 yellow cards and 2 red cards.
Hi is also a member of the ENGLISH Hall of Fame
He was a pretty good footballer regardless of playing for that lot. But never broke any goalscoring records etc.
so what did he actually do to Scottish Football which justifies his acceptance in the first place?

There is much more deserving players of rangers and every other team in Scotland that should be in it first.
But the way they have went about it and the excuse they have used to pull the nomination is pretty poor to be honest.

No problem at all with official recognition of gascoigne. He was a pain in the arse and an exceptional talent.

13 Oct 2018 09:39:10
Cava the Scottish hall of fame should be for people that have done great things in Scottish football or for Scottish football.
Gazza done neither.
His whole career was just a major waste of talent.

His name could have rolled off the tongue in lists like
Pele
maradona
Zidane
Ronaldo (Brazilian)
Messi
Ronaldo as some of the best players that ever lived but it doesn't.
He should now be held up to weans as an example of what NOT to do with your god given talent.
He's probably the most skilled player that done feck all with his career that ever lived.

Gascoigne ( despite his off field issues) was one of the finest players to ever play in this country and should be inducted in to hall of fame for that reason.

I don't have many rangers mates, but I reckon they must look at gaza something like we look at Lubo? I'm not a fan of 'Hall (s) of Fame' per se, but if there is to be such a thing then I've no objection to his inclusion. If I were to pick a ranger of that generation my first thought would be M. Walters right enough.

I've disliked him since the fa cup semi when he tried twice to do a Notts Forrest player . then laughed my arse off when he done himself in said game and got stretchered off greeting like a bitch . joining them cemented that dislike . I don't think he should get in because of this but he should get in if he deserved / merited it . which we didn't. it's his name rather than contribution that's getting him in.

The man was a wife beater alki and was fond of the Colombian marching powder plus he's been videod singing the sevco megamix. not for me.

His talent does merit him getting in but his behaviour on and off the field should exclude him. The hall of fame is a reference point for parents to show their children the great people that have graced the game and perhaps inspire some of them to putting effort into developing themselves as players. It should also serve to teach them to respect their opponents achievements whilst enjoying those of their own team. Gascogne is not a role model and we shouldn’t be teaching younger generations that it’s ok to behave the way he does because he happens to have been a good footballer. However, the handling of the whole episode has been appalling and I can imagine that this could have a profound negative effect on Gascogne who clearly has mental health issues.

He won 4 trophies and was part of a team that blew 10 in a row.
He had several high profile incidents including a 5 match bad for violent conduct and stoked religious tentions with his stupid flute celebration.
He done nothing of serious note on the field in Scotland.

Guys like Barry Ferguson, neale copper and roy aitken have all acheived so much more.
Putting Gazza in was a publicity stunt and nothing more.

He doesn't deserve to be in it.

Personally,
I feel he has had his recognition by being inducted in the English Hall of Fame.
Once again though, our illustrious leaders have shown their incompetence.
They announced publicly that the 2 semi-finals would be played at Hampden on the same day.
THEN, they discussed it and had to changed that.
Now, they have announced Gazza's nomination publicly and had to backtrack on that one as well.
They are totally and utterly useless as the custodians of Scottish Football.
A for Gazza, great talent but not really deserving of the nomination imo.

13 Oct 2018 12:48:24
Being talented isn't a good enough reason to get into the hall of fame.

You have to achieve someone in my opinion. Gazza has never had ANY great achievements in football.

13 Oct 2018 13:03:56
Halls of Fame are a load of pysh in my book. I have no issue for an honour of some description to a player who has made a major positive contribution to the game. Having a Hall of Fame for every flippin country just dilutes any accolade a player receives.
UK Hall of Fame? World Hall of Fame? Maybe, just maybe, but all this localised stuff is crap. Next thing we'll be getting a Hall of Fame for your local postcode. HH.

The fat melts highlight of his career was with Walkers crisps!

13 Oct 2018 17:46:43
Is it the Hall of Fame or Hall of Infamy?

When someone is nominated for an honour, usually a very distinguished and educated panel of experts reviews the nomination against a checklist of criteria. This normally includes their positive contributions as well as anything negative in their public and private life.

There is always a Devil’s Advocate to raise the reasons why the honour should not be bestowed.

Any one of about seven reasons stops this particular individual being honoured I’m afraid. But all of them together rules him out absolutely and indefinitely.

What surprises me is that someone at TRFC decided to sponsor his nomination and put him forward. Their judgement is severely flawed and they have done him a disservice and are the root of this problem, not the Hall of Fame Administrators.

Who in their right mind thought this could possibly pass muster?

13 Oct 2018 20:37:50
Gazza should never even be considered for our hall of fame. Most of the time he was playing in Scotland he was a fat person. I also remember his running style of high arms and elbowing people in the face on a regular basis. Yes he did produce the odd bit of magic but often the game passed him by because he was so unfit.

Laudrup would be far more deserving of being inducted if he isn't already.

13 Oct 2018 22:10:57
John Brown is an Ambassador for them so he's in good company.

13 Oct 2018 21:34:51
He's won a lot less than other people who aren't in the hall of fame.
