YOUNG Liverpool strikers have been receiving tips from the greatest goal scorer in the club's history.
Ian Rush paid a visit to Kirkby last week and Academy director Frank McParland admits it was a major boost for those rising through the ranks.
“Ian ran an indoor session with the under-15 and under-16 strikers and gave them tips on how to improve their finishing,” said McParland.
“It's not bad being able to call upon the club's record goalscorer in all competitions is it?
“I'm sure those lads will have taken every word he said on board and it'll be a day they remember for the rest of their lives.
“Hopefully we'll see the benefit of it out on the pitch in the months and years ahead.”
