Happy birthday, Robbie - the new number five!

Robbie Fowler’s goal vs West Brom on 1st of April 2006 was his 173rd for the club and made him fifth in the all-time list of Liverpool of goalscorers.

Fowler played down the achievement: “It’s fantastic for me but Kenny Dalglish is a proper Liverpool legend. To get anywhere near him is an achievement, so to go one past him makes me very happy.”

Fowler said Kenny would probably ring him as he has had the habit of doing throughout Fowler's career but King Kenny had other ideas.

"I won’t be ringing him. He’s now scored more goals than me so I’m not talking to him. In fact, I wish he hadn’t come back, who’s bright idea was that?"

Joking aside, Dalglish went on: "Nah, it’s a fantastic achievement for Robbie and I’m delighted for him, he’s a great lad. Once he returned it was inevitable he was going to overtake me and I have no problems with that. It’s not like I was the top scorer of all-time. That title belongs to Rushie and he’ll take some beating."
