Standing supreme as Liverpool's all-time scoring king he was one of the
deadliest strikers in football history, blending superb anticipation with
lethal finishing. His attack partnership with Kenny Dalglish is widely rated
the best ever in British football.

Rush became Britain's most expensive teenager when Bob Paisley paid £300,000
to sign him from Chester in 1980. During his two-part Anfield career, split
by a season with Juventus in 1987-88 when he left and returned for a
combined £6 million, Rush scored 346 goals in 660 senior outings.
Rush's haul of 44 FA Cup goals (39 of them for Liverpool) is a 20th century
record while his five-goal total in FA Cup Finals (two in 1986 and 1989 and
one in 1992 all on winning Liverpool sides) is an all-time best by an
individual. Rush shares with Geoff Hurst the League Cup scoring record of 49
and was the first player to win that competition five times, completing his
hand as Liverpool captain against Bolton in 1995. He scored 10 times in 18
Wembley outings for the club.

He also collected five Championship medals, one European Cup and was awarded
the MBE. Rush scored an all-time Mersey derby record of 25 goals against
Everton, won Europe's Golden Boot with 32 League goals in 1984 when he was
also double Footballer of the Year and captained Wales, for whom he scored a
record 28 goals in 73 games.
