Liverpool Birthday Boy: Ian Rush’s Ten Greatest Goals
If you’re a Welsh Liverpool fan then is this the article for you!
To be honest, even if you’re not, this article reveals some of the finest goals scored by Ian Rush during his time as a Liverpool footballer, and if you’re remotely interested in football, you will enjoy these goals.
Today marks his 54th birthday and those of us at the Football FanCast headquarters couldn’t pass up the opportunity to enjoy some of Rush’s finest moments.
He was a master at composure and scored a truly frightening amount of goals during his two spells on Merseyside.
In his first spell (which includes a loan back from Italian giants Juventus), Rushie netted 139 league goals in 224 appearances – before scoring 90 goals in 245 games once he rejoined the Reds.
He also featured for Leeds, Newcastle and Sheffield Wednesday after his time at Liverpool and was capped 73 times by Wales, scoring 28 goals.
In 1992, Rush overtook Roger Hunt to become Liverpool’s all time leading goalscorer, achieving the feat in the best possible way – scoring against arch rivals Manchester United.
As it stands, Rushie’s Liverpool record appears untouchable and he is far clear of the chasing pack with his 346 goals in all competitions for the Merseysiders.
Without further ado then, here are Ian Rush’ 10 best goals of all time.
