PFA chief Gordon Taylor insists they won't abandon troubled Tottenham icon Paul Gascoigne.
Taylor fears Gascoigne could be heading the same way as George Best - but vowed that his organisation would not be giving up on the troubled former England midfielder.
"We have tried to support him throughout all his problems with rehabilitation at various clinics, with medical help," Taylor said.
"We are in regular touch with him and have been again. We go one step forward and two back at times and this is just the situation.
"If we are not careful, it is going to be akin to George Best.
"It is unfortunate, but we try to keep going."
