Ferguson said: “Gazza was quite good to me. I used to drive, when I shouldn’t have been driving, and go and get him a McDonald’s.

“He obviously had problems with eating but I used to go and get him a couple of McDonald’s at times with Jimmy Five Bellies.”

Asked by Ferry what Gascoigne’s McDonald’s order was, Ferguson replied: “He liked a strawberry milkshake, and a Big Mac.”

Ferguson also brought up comments made by former Rangers winger Andrei Kanchelskis, saying: “I seen Andrei Kanchelskis saying I used to eat three McChicken Sandwiches a week.

“He’s obviously trying to sell books, that’s a lot of s**t. It was two or three cheeseburgers, it wasn’t McChicken Sandwiches.”
