Strong striker who made his name with Coventry and Pompey before
moving on to the likes of AC Milan and Glasgow Rangers. Scored the
goal that helped knock Leeds out of the European Cup in 1992 and
played just 6 games for Leeds in 1996 while on loan from QPR. One of
the last of the line of 'old-fashioned' centre-forwards.
Darren Archer says: I met Mark Hately at a Rangers dinner dance. He
was fantastic. Nicer man u couldn't meet. A credit to Rangers Football
marco says: Ciao Mark sei sempre nei nostri cuori! FORZA MILAN
......YOU ARE LEGEND!
Simon Newsham says: I Saw Mark Hateley play many times for
Portsmouth in the 80s, he was a legend, there's no better header of
the ball,and a top quality bloke, he once got two hat-tricks in a
week! tues night v Grimsby & then again on saturday v
Cambridge. And my Dad played with his dad for Notts Co in the early
60s. My brother & I went to Wembley on the off chance that he
might make his England debut against Russia, he did, England were
rubbish and lost 2-0 but Mark had a shot which left the Russian goalie
winded and gasping for breath! Do you remember the John Barnes goal v
Brazil at the Maracana? then Hateley got a header, Brazilian TV then
pulled the plug! Last spotted him in M&S in Pompey a couple of years
ago. His replacement after his 1 million move to AC Milan, (I became a
fan of theirs only because of Hateley) was Scott McGarvey, he used to
drink in my pub and was really on a hiding to nothing, he was never
going to follow in his Hateleys footsteps.
Anon says: he was a great player and one of Rangers best players
Bazzared says: I hate the guy. He bullied Aberdeen out of winning
the league title in 1992 by decking our young inexperienced goalkeeper
in the opening minutes. Cheating hun scum as far as I'm concerned.
Jamie Rea Northern Irelands Supporters says: a true rangers great
always proud to wear my Hateley 10 shirts.
james (hull city) oconnor says: he's a total baron the beckham of
kelsey knox says: i think he is not only the best footballer in the
world he is also the greatest uncle.
Laudrup's left leg says: One of the best strikers to wear a Rangers
shirt. Formed a formidable partnership with Ally McCoist and Celtic
couldn't get near us. Have never had another target man of this
Kristian Barford says: I bumped into Mark Hateley in a pub in the
East Yorkshire village of North Ferriby halfway through he's tenure as
Hull City manager. He was hacked off with our then-chairman, having
been promised £1 million for team strengthening, and drank
Fosters. I found his assistant Billy Kirkwood far better company -
Hateley just spent the night staring down his nose at us mere
Steve Keogh says: It's wonderful to see that Kelsey Knox calls Mr
Hateley "uncle". I thought this polite way of refering to your mums
lover was out of date. I suppose they could be married by now; it's
been a while since I lived in Swanland. As a football fan (now in my
30's) Mr Hateley was a hero; he was a fantastic footballer & when
he came to manage Hull City there was many of us who thought Christmas
had arrived early and that things would instantly get better. Sadly
not true and I agree with Kristian Barford as my hero worship died
within 30 seconds of meeting him in the flesh; 5 pints of Fosters
larger was about what it took for the arrogance to surface.
peachy says: rangers greatest ever no 10
laidlaw says: hateley and mccoist, rangers and europes best
striking partnership of the 90s by far. hateley is a legend
Norbert Roux says: I saw Mark Hateley (and Glenn Holdde)when they
played for Wenger's AS Monaco in 1990. It was a real delight, a
fantasy to attend one of their match. THANKS FOR ALL, MARK ! Amour et
Gloire à toi !!!
Saby says: on the octber 1984 I was in the S.Siro stadium to see
Milan Inter and the magic goal of Mark "Attila" Hateley against
Inter. it was the best goal I never saw also cuz it was full of
meaning. he was my hero for years... today (it passed 20 years)if u
talk with a fans of Milan about derby ,the memory comes to the head
shoot that it makes win the derby after 9 years. he is always in our
heart red and black.
