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
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
Anon says: he was a great player and one of Rangers best
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
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 the 1980's
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 calibre since.
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 mortals.
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
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.
