From "Celebration Year 1994/95 Ian Rush"
"I would never play for Everton or Man Utd."
Rush in an exclusive interview with lfchistory. Alex Ferguson approached Rush when he wanted to leave Juve.
"I was just 13 when I went with a [FC] Dynamo Kyiv boys team to play in a tournament in Wales. We won the tournament and I was named the best player. What made it special was that Ian Rush was there to give me my prize. I treasured those boots for years. It meant such a lot because everyone in Ukraine knew about Ian Rush, the legendary Liverpool player. Funnily enough, the boots were too small for me but I still tried to play in them – until my big toes poked through."
Andriy Shevchenko in April 2005
"Records are there to be broken. I thought it’d last a bit longer when he went to Italy but then he came back! I wasn’t gutted when he resigned – if anyone had to break my record I’m glad it was Ian Rush."
Roger Hunt on Ian Rush in October 2006 when Hunt was inducted into the National Football Museum’s Hall of Fame.
"I think Rushie would be the first to admit that in training he just looked like an ordinary player. He didn't have the explosive pace, but all of a sudden, as soon as he got in the first team, he caught fire. He surprised everybody. He gained three or four yards of pace, his touch was great. His record speaks for itself, what a great player to be replaced by. I feel good about it. I would have felt worse if somebody had replaced me not as good. He wasn't the best of trainers, but a great, great, great player for Liverpool. A class act."
David Johnson on his replacement in the side, one Ian Rush
"Ian Rush made me look brilliant in the air. When I jumped up and headed, the ball would always go to Rushie. He could read my body; the way I jumped up Ian would deduce where the ball would go. He worked it out before I had. Rush never knew which bloody knife or fork to use, but on the pitch he was a genius."
