Paul Gascoigne has hit back at the Scottish Football Association and insisted he does not need to be in the Scottish Football Hall of Fame to know he was "the best".

The former Rangers midfielder was recently voted into the hall of fame only for his induction to be cancelled amid reports that some SFA board members were planning to boycott the dinner later this month.

Gascoigne wrote on Twitter: "I don't need to be in The Scottish Hall of Fame to be be recognised as one of the best I feel the love & support of the People and know I was the best."

The former England midfielder also directed footage of his Euro 96 goal against Scotland to the SFA's official Twitter account with the message: "NO HARD FEELINGS xxxx".
