Jabba's Comments

One of the greatest goalscorers to come out of the British Isles. Unfortunately, his great days were long since gone when he came to Leeds - although many Leeds fans do remember him fondly for the goal he scored at Anfield on 26 April 1992, when he bagged the first of Liverpool's two goals that condemned Manchester United to defeat and sent the title to Elland Road. He scored just 3 times for Leeds in the season he was at Elland Road - not what you'd have hoped for from the man who set scoring records through the late 80s and early 90s, but in a side that was struggling, a 35-year-old striker can only do so much to help.

Gary says: My uncle actually went to school with Ian Rush and I have a class photo to prove it.

Dave Clark says: He first played for us in a special televised testimonial for John Charles. I can't remember the year, but we were in the old 2nd division. Dalglish and Scirea, the Italian centre back, also played.

Nick says: Has Ian Rush died? Jabba says: not yet....

kevin says: ian rush a amazing footballer when he went to school. every one thoght he would play for a team but not one like juventus

Anon says: Always remember the respect his dad Franny received whenever he got on the supporters bus to go to Anfield

ajay luchmun says: it would be much appreciated if our former liverpool player would reached at Anfield, for a big help as our team need him now. thanks to you Ian.

Darryl Powell says: Ian Rush works at Tesco.

Kenrick Sealy says: What was his jersey number when he played for Liverpool? I am having a hard time finding a photo with his jersey number. Thanks.
