So... I struggled to sleep last night, I was awake until after 6 am and I'm feeling exhausted. Should I still get into the gym or will it be a waste of a workout?

It's always better to go in than miss a scheduled workout. If you can make it up on the following day then do that but...

Your body reacts in strange ways. You can always go in and work up to a certain weight. With a proper warm up, you should be fine and if you don't feel like reps are coming, DON'T force them.

Never miss a workout if can can help it, but never do more than you can on a given day.

Unfortunately this workout was a disaster.

I had very little energy

Squats
70kg x8
80kg x6

I was struggling big time so did some ab work and bailed

Notes: I have now seen the importance of rest

It was important that you gave it a shot to see how your body reacts to tiredness etc. You now know that squats without sleep = bad for you individually.
Personally, I don't sleep well at all most nights and often feel like I have zero energy when training yet I still manage to lift close to my best on occasion. We're all different. (And sessions sometimes suck when I am extremely energetic).

Also, you knew when enough was enough and wisely backed off. Another important learning curve.

Even a sub-par workout adds another piece to the puzzle.
