Mark Wayne Hateley (born 7 November 1961 in Wallasey, Merseyside[1]) is a retired English football player who played as a centre-forward. He was capped 32 times for the English national team (including games in the 1986 World Cup), and played in top-level football leagues in England, Italy, France and Scotland. His nickname is Attila.[2]

Career

Playing

Hateley started his career at Coventry City, playing over 100 games in the First Division before moving to Portsmouth in the summer of 1983 just after their promotion to the Second Division. He scored 22 league goals in the 1983-84 season and on 28 June 1984 he was transferred to A.C. Milan for £1million.[3]

However, his move did not come at one of the famous Italian side's greatest times, when they were still re-establishing themselves in Serie A after slipping out of it twice (the first time due to demotion as a result of a match fixing scandal) in the previous six years.[4] That year he also helped England win the 1984 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, scoring six goals in the knockout stages, bringing his final tally for the Under-21 side to eight goals in 10 appearances.

He then joined AS Monaco in 1987, where he spent three years and won a French league title under the management of Arsene Wenger before transferring to Rangers in July 1990. Manager Graeme Souness had attempted to bring him to Ibrox three years earlier from AC Milan, only for Monaco to pip him to Hateley's signature.[5]

Arguably he enjoyed his best days at Rangers, where he scored both goals in a title-clinching 2–0 victory against Aberdeen on the final day of the 1990–91 season. He was also the first non-Scottish player to win the Scottish Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year award.

He left Rangers in late 1995 (having won five successive league titles with an average of some 20 goals per season), with family problems suspected to be the catalyst for his move to Queen's Park Rangers for £1.5million - a large sum for a 34-year-old. Rangers manager Walter Smith had also favoured Ally McCoist and Gordon Durie as his strikers for the 1995-96 season, having also bought Oleg Salenko and Peter van Vossen for the forward positions.

However, he was unable to stop QPR from suffering relegation from the Premier League in 1995–96 and was consigned largely to the reserves thereafter. Though he did have a short loan spell at Leeds United during this period, but six appearances in the 1996-97 season failed to produce a single Premier League goal.

In early 1997, with Rangers trying to win their ninth title in a row, and with a huge injury list, manager Walter Smith desperately needed a striker, and re-signed Hateley for £300,000 for the vital game against Rangers' biggest rivals, Celtic. Rangers won the game 1–0 but Hateley was sent off for headbutting Stewart Kerr. He played four times in his second spell at Rangers, scoring once, as Rangers won their ninth successive Scottish league title. His contract was not renewed and he spent the following season back in England, with an unsuccessful spell as player-manager of financially troubled Division Three club Hull City.

He ended his playing career after being given a free transfer by Ross County in September 1999 due to several poor performances.[6]

Management

Following his departure from Rangers for a second time he became player manager for Hull City. Hateley managed Hull between 1997 and 1999, but left after two unproductive seasons which saw them struggling near the foot of The Football League and overshadowed by the constant fear of extinction.
