3. Ian Rush
Ian Rush is a retired Welsh striker, he played for Liverpool F.C. from 1980–1987 and 1988–1996. He is the club’s all-time leading goalscorer, having scored a total of 346 goals in all competitions during his two spells at the club. At international level he made 73 appearances for the Wales national football team and remains the record goalscorer for his country with 28 goals between 1980 and 1996.
He scored at will, but there was so much more to him. His honours include five league championships and a European Cup, that earns him a place among Liverpool legends.
2. Kenny Dalglish
Magician, genius, king, call him what you want. He is regarded as one of the best Liverpool players ever if not the best.
With 172 goals scored for Liverpool, King Kenny is probably most remembered for his European Cup clinching goal in the 1978 final.
He seemed to play football in the future, knowing exactly where his team-mates would be and the perfect ball to play. He represented the club with class on and off the field.
He also managed Liverpool and earned fame for himself there too.He won 13 trophies as a player and 6 trophies as a manager.Many would put him at no.1 position among ‘Liverpool legends’ and no one would argue that.
1. Steven Gerrard
Steven Gerrard just pips Dalglish as Liverpool’s greatest ever player. What he achieved, often in far more inferior sides, was astonishing. His passion for the club was unmatched. Many big clubs wanted him in his prime, but he stayed loyal to Liverpool.
A local lad who has risen through the ranks to lead his beloved club to a Champions League crown, two FA Cups and three League Cups.
Gerrard has scored over 150 goals during his 14 years with the first team. He is surely the greatest player to ever don the Reds jersey. He is our no.1 in the list of ‘best Liverpool players ever’.
