Fury: The post incited anger from fans who bullyed the star & # 39; and & # 39; disrespectful & # 39; and blamed him for using the photo in the light of Paul's medical problems.
The former footballer has had several stints in the drug and alcohol addiction cure – the last of which he has been suffering for more than 20 years.
In 2011, sports legend revealed that he threw down nine brandies before a game and snorted cocaine.
Earlier this week, Gascoigne caused controversy when he led a choir of angry Benidorm vacationers in the belts of & # 39; f *** the pope and the IRA & # 39; during his £ 18-a-ticket singalong bash.
Fans flocked to see the star perform at the Ibrox Bar in the Spanish resort on the Costa Blanca on Saturday, where he was filmed and participated in the filthy song.
Gascoigne, who played for the historically Protestant club Rangers, sang an adaptation of Tina Turners Simply The Best, who met the leader of the Catholic Church and the predominantly Catholic Irish nationalists.
Others called the tweet & # 39; bullying and unacceptable & # 39; from Snoop Dogg
Return: The star returned to the field at Tottenham Hotspur in March for the Legends v Inter Forever competition earlier this year.

A video published by the bar on their social media shows the retired footballer, dressed in a bright blue shirt, making his way through a crowd of cheerful and shirtless fans.
At the beginning of June 2019, the PFA and the Sporting Chance Clinic joined Gascoigne after images appeared showing that the former English star was apparently drunk and a man asked for cocaine.
Gascoigne was captured on camera and apparently offered money for the class A drug.
The star later tried to alleviate fears, later tweet that he & # 39; good and safe & # 39; used to be.
In addition to a photo on which he kissed England's shirt in his pumpkins, Gascoigne wrote: & I love you all from the bottom of my heart. & # 39;
Snoop has long been an advocate of smoking marijuana, which is legal in the state of California, and once boasted on lighting in the White House.
Gascoigne played for Lazio and won 57 English caps during a turbulent career, but went back to rehabilitation after he ended up in hospital after a two-day binge.
He started his football career at his youth club Newcastle when he joined the youth group at the age of 13. He went to the first team in 1985.
He scored 21 goals in 92 appearances for the Magpies, then joined Tottenham in 1988 for a then British allowance of £ 2.2 million and played 92 times for the club.
Snoop has released 16 studio albums since he was discovered by Dr. Dre in 1992 and has sold more than 23 million records in the United States and 35 million worldwide.
He has also appeared in numerous films and TV episodes, including Baby Boy, Scary Movie 5 and Starsky & Hutch
What is the danger of smoking cannabis?
Cannabis is the most commonly used illegal drug in the UK.
Short-term use can cause people to get confused, anxious or paranoid, and some experience panic attacks and hallucinations.
The NHS states that regular users feel demotivated and are not interested in things that happen in your life, such as education or work. Prolonged use can affect your ability to learn and concentrate.
Research shows that 10% of regular cannabis users become dependent on it. The risk of becoming addicted is greater if it is used during the teenage years or every day.
As with other addictive drugs, such as cocaine and heroin, users can develop a tolerance for cannabis. This means that more is needed to get the same effect.
By smoking cannabis with tobacco, users are likely to become addicted to nicotine and risk tobacco-related diseases such as cancer and coronary heart disease.
Regular cannabis use increases the risk of developing a psychotic illness, such as schizophrenia. Cannabis also increases the risk of relapse in people who already have schizophrenia and it can aggravate psychotic symptoms.
People who regularly smoke cannabis are more likely to have bronchitis (with which the lining of your lungs becomes irritated and inflamed).
Like tobacco smoke, cannabis smoke contains carcinogenic chemicals, but it is not clear whether this increases the risk of cancer.
If you mix cannabis with tobacco to smoke it, you risk getting tobacco-related lung diseases, such as lung cancer and chronic pulmonary obstructive disease (COPD).
Cannabis can affect your fertility. Animal studies suggest that cannabis can affect sperm production in men and ovulation in women.
Research shows that regular use of cannabis during pregnancy can affect the development of your baby's brain.
Regular smoking of cannabis with tobacco increases the risk that your baby will be born small or early.
Cannabis also increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Research suggests that it is the cannabis smoke that increases the risk, not the active ingredients in the plant itself.
