News From Liverpool: 7 photos of incredible new Ian Rush mural at Anfield – A great honour

Rush is the latest Red to be immortalised with a new mural, one that pays tribute to the Welshmans incredible feats as Liverpools No. 9.

In 660 appearances across two spells with the club, Rush found the net an astounding 346 times to create a record that is unlikely to ever be broken.

The new design, created by MurWalls, can be found on the corner house opposite Anfields Main Stand, on Alroy Road.

The level of detail is extraordinary and depicts Rush celebrating with his trademark two hands in the air from the 1989 FA Cup final, his brace helping to deliver the cup for Liverpool that day.

The mural was unveiled on Thursday and sits on the adjacent corner to the tributes to Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson, where Sybil Road meets Anfield Road.

And Rush himself, who enjoyed the unveiling with his family, including his great-nephew Owen Beck, spoke of the great honour of being immortalised so close to the clubs spiritual home.

I think its a great honour to be given a mural so close to Anfield, Rush told This Is Anfield. Murals are going everywhere, but to be so close to Anfield is a dream come true, for me.

When youre playing, you just get on with it and its only when you stop playing and you become a supporter you realise Ive scored 346 goals!

I can sit back now and say, Yeah, Ive done well, because I dont have to do it anymore.

To see my face out there is incredible, Im so proud. Id like to thank Liverpool Football Club, Liverpool Council and Marc from MurWalls theyve been absolutely fantastic.

Its another brilliant pitstop for supporters on matchdays to enjoy!
