Ex-Rangers star Hateley: Top players may move in this summer

Former Rangers star forward Mark Hateley fears the club will experience a mass exodus of top quality players this summer.

The Glasgow giants are still in limbo as their financial and administration situation continues to cause problems for all involved and Hateley suggests that a handful of 'Gers stars - who have clauses in their contracts - could opt to move on when the transfer window opens.

"I'm always of the belief that as top pros you are always trying to make yourself the best you can be before your short career is over. That was my way of looking at things anyway," said Hateley.

"Top players are always looking to become a better player and the players in this bracket - (Allan) McGregor, (Steven) Davis, (Steven) Naismith, (Steven) Whittaker - they are all top players.

"I think the question will be asked by their advisors - is staying at Rangers going to make you a better player?

"Possibly the circumstances from June 6th will determine those decisions but top players want to be the best they can possibly be and if those circumstances deny them that chance then the players have a question to ask themselves."
