Former Rangers frontman Mark Hateley says new Ibrox striker Nicky Clark must prove last season's impressive goal haul was not a one-off.

Mark Hateley: Warns new Rangers frontman Nicky Clark consistency is key

Clark's 41-goal tally helped Rangers runaway with the Second Division title, and also earned him the PFA Scotland Player of the Year prize.

And former Ibrox striker Hateley says the 22-year-old must show consistency if he is to succeed under Ally McCoist.

"Trying to find a level of consistency will be the most important thing for Nicky," Hateley said.

"That is the most challenging thing for any young player at any club. When you go to a big club, it's even more demanding.

"He got 40-odd goals last season. But what did he get the year before? One.

"Consistency is everything. He had a great year last year but I would suggest he is coming to a better club than he played at last year, that will make more chances for him and it's all about having that self-belief to put the ball in the back of the net."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
