Liverpool FC news: Legend Ian Rush says Kenny Dalglish brought the city together after the Hillsborough disaster
Rush and Dalglish are considered one of the greatest ever strike partnerships
Ian Rush says his former Reds strike partner Kenny Dalglish brought the people of Liverpool together after the Hilsborough disaster.
Dalglish was awarded a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for his services to football and charity.
And Rush says he couldn’t be more deserving of the honour for his work supporting the families affected by Hilsborough.
He told talkSPORT: “He went to virtually every funeral. It’s absolutely unbelievable.
“[The knighthood] is for the city of Liverpool and what he’s done for the city of Liverpool. He’s brought them closer together.”
Dalglish won three European Cups and six league titles in what was a glittering career as a player and a manager for the Reds.
Rush, Liverpool’s all-time leading goalscorer with 346 goals, added: “You’re supposed to say no one’s bigger than the club, but at the end of the day Dalglish will go down in history.
“Bill Shankly set the foundations. Bob Paisley took them to another level and then you’ve got Dalglish.
“He’s absolutely amazing.”
