Thread: Mark Hateley interview for Milan TV last year...

    Default Mark Hateley interview for Milan TV last year...

    Just browsing You Tube after reading thread on Wattie's 11.
    Clearly very well thought of in Milan: esp with his headed winner for Milan's first derby win in 6 years!
    A couple of things from the video...what a banner they did for him and does the goal remind you off his goal for us in a last day title win, albeit from the other side of the pitch?

    He did some serious damage when he was with us...cracking front man.

    The best forward I've seen at Ibrox, pretty much had everything. What a player

    Heard about that goal alot but that's the first I've seen it. Really similar to the Aberdeen one!

    He was an absolute monster of striker. The filth were f*cking petrified of him.

    Loved that, when we signed him I was 9 / 10 years old and I was giddy at the thought we had paid over a million for a player and someone playing for AC Milan.

    He was definitely correct there, he's a derby player. He terrorised the mutants.

    That crossed my mind too, the similarities are uncanny.

    He was also great at bursting runs on the wings .. Must have been a nightmare to play against.. A proper centre forward

    Best striker I've seen play for rangers in recent times, easily

    Surprised he never got more caps for England.

    Took ages to get going with us , once he found his fitness, he was a great signing..

    He wasn't great to start with. He was given time to get match fit after a pretty long lay off. Just as well the current impatience wasn't around then, we would never have seen the best of him.

    Recent times? He last played for us over 20 years ago!

    Andy Carrol is the closest player in style I have seen since he chucked it, tho he doesnt have the same running power.

    Hateley was phenomenal, hard as f#ck but a real footballer with skill.
    Celtc couldn't deal with him but Aberdeen (whom were really our title rivals then) collapsed when the big mans mane galloped towards their goal. Loved him as a Ger!

    To be honest I didn't like him at first, only after the sheep title decider did I start to rate him.
    After that he became a beast of a player, even more so, when Super got injured and he had to carry the line, he battered teams almost single handed, even seemed to gain speed and power that hadn't been there before.
    A great player in his day.

    We signed him from Monaco. He knocked us back when he was leaving Milan.

    Been a Pompey supporter all my life thanks to my grandad. Although I was young(ish) at the time I absolutely loved him when he was at Pompey, fantastic player

    Best Rangers striker in my life time. Fantastic player. His looping header at tynecastle after some great build up sticks in my mind.

    Took a while to settle then couldn't be stopped. I'm not one for conspiracies but I am almost certain Marseille bribed the referee who sent Hateley off against Brugge meaning he couldn't play at the velodrome. They were terrified of him.

    Definitely the most complete centre forward I've ever seen play for us. Seen him recently in boots at Craigmarloch while waiting on a prescription and bottled it to ask him for a photo, instead I just nodded and I got a nod back. Surprisingly slight in build now with long skinny bow legs, is hard to imagine how he terrorised defenders twenty years ago. Brilliant, brilliant player for us.

    My favourite memory is when he returned to do them over one last time
    Truth was he was done by then but he walked through the airport like he owned it
    They shat themselves and somehow from somewhere he dredged up one last performance
    Closest thing I've seen to a Rocky movie on a football park

    I was maybe too young to see the first edition, but remember fondly the return of the man.

    It was an odd one. Had we a complete injury crisis at the time? Got a feeling he started up front on his own?

    It was all a bit surreal. A stroke of genius all the same.

    He's another who's an @rse now, sadly. For such an infectious club, who takes to the hearts of nearly everyone, we don't have spit out some pricks down the line.

    If only he hadn't been sent off against Brugge and suspended for a ridiculous three games...

    He carried us though much of the 93/94 season when we had major injury problems, and fit players who looked dead on their feet from the number of games the season before.

    An absolute monster of a striker who had everything.

    That adidas top is sublime.

    The one with the chevrons running off the shoulder.

    The reporter at the airport asked him how it felt to be coming back, the big man replied " im not coming back, im coming home" fantastic player
