The taxman is petitioning on the basis of an estimated £200,000 liability.

At London Bankruptcy Court today, the case was adjourned until January 9 with the Revenue's agreement.

Gascoigne's solicitor Craig Montgomery told Deputy Registrar Kyriakides that his financial affairs were complex, involving interests overseas, and time was needed to submit returns and liquidate assets to meet his liabilities.
