Fans have taken to social media to lash out at Snoop Dogg after using England legend Paul Gascoigne in a post campaigning against the negative effects of "alcohol abuse".

The American rapper recently posted a pictured on his official Instagram page showing former footballer in a negative light.

Dogg, 47, put placed side-by-side two pictures of the 52-year-old - one at age 20 and the other when he was 47 to show just how much he's changed.

According to SunSport, Gazza, as he is fondly referred to has been struggling with alcohol and mental issues for some years now.
