Mark Hateley interview for

Speaking to, former Rangers frontman Mark Hateley gave his thoughts on his old team’s chances in the Europa League this season as well as whether they can pull through to win the Scottish Premiership.

The former Gers striker has told that he believes Rangers have as good a chance as any team at winning the Europa League after their victory over Real Betis secured them a spot in the last 16 of the competition.

Read more on what he had to say below.

Hateley’s comments on potential Europa League success

Rangers go straight through to the last 16 and they can’t draw an English side which will help. They have as good a chance as any team in that competition. The January transfer window could be key as to how far they go.

Ten minutes before the end of the Real Betis game, Rangers were heading down to the Europa Conference League. It is a case of very small margins that can change the club’s fate. Now they’re straight into the last 16 of the Europa League.

That gathers them a vast amount of money and more televised matches. However, in the space of ten minutes it could have gone the other way – that’s how fine the margins are. With the way they’re playing at the moment, who’s to say that they can’t go further in the competition. I feel confident in the team, as do the fans.

European progress has fans believing they can win Scottish Premiership

Given Rangers’ European successes so far this season, Hateley believes their performances against the likes of Real Betis will give fans confidence that they can go on to win the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers will be excited with where they are right now because it gives everybody great belief that they actually have the ability to win the Scottish Premiership.

They’re in the last 16 of the Europa League and they were in the final not so long ago. Rangers fans always believe that they can achieve, and they will always stick behind the team.
