    The old team-mates met at Everton's training ground, where Gazza appeared in 32 matches during a two-year stint with the club, and remains a beloved figure at Goodson Park.

    Rooney arrived when Gascoigne was posing for pictures with former team-mates David Unsworth and Duncan Ferguson, and the two laughed as the ex-England skipper handed Gazza the £40 he owed from 18 years ago.

    It's not clear how satisfied Gascoigne was with the arrangement, because in a 2015 interview, while praising Wayne's talent he did say: "He's never given the £40 back so the interest is about £1.2 billion now!"
