England and Glasgow Rangers footballer Paul Gascoigne may go to America to play out his career when he eventually quits the game in Britain, he said yesterday.

After that, he is considering taking a complete break for "a couple of years", before coaching youngsters. "They will play with a smile on their face and will pass and move, and if they don't enjoy it I will tell them not to bother because what is the point if you are not enjoying it at any level," said Gascoigne (right). If he was still enjoying football he would love to stay in Britain, he said in an interview with Scotland on Sunday. But he went on: "If I feel a bit down living in England ... I might go over to America for a couple of years, enjoy my football over there ...

"Of all the things I regret ... the biggest [is that] I took all my problems out on [his wife] Sheryl. I have to live with that." Now, he said, he was back in control and his home life was not a problem.
