Ian Rush

Where is Ian Rush now?

Arguably one of the top strikers in the English game during the 1980’s and 1990’s, Ian Rush finally called time on his career at the age of 38 after a brief spell playing in Australia.

Playing professionally for 22 years he finished his career having made 827 first-team appearances and scoring 383 goals for eight clubs.

He won a number of trophies during his time at Liverpool including the First Division title five times, the FA Cup three times, the League Cup five times and the European Cup twice.

In addition to his team trophies he won numerous indiviudal awards including the PFA Young Player of the Year in 1983 and the PFA Player of the Year, First Division Golden Boot and European Golden Boot in 1984.

He was also an important member of the Wales national side and won 73 caps, scoring 28 goals from 1990 to 1996.

Upon retiring from playing Rush embarked on a coaching career and worked as a striker coach on a part-time basis for Liverpool under Gerard Houllier.

He got his first managerial appointment in 2004, when he joined former side Chester City but his tenure only lasted until April 2005 when he resigned after a fallout with the board.

Since his coaching role at Chester, Rush has been involved in many different things including media work as a pundit for ESPN and Sky Sports as well as releasing a book Rush: The Autobiography which you can purchase from Amazon.

He still has very strong ties with Liverpool and has worked as an ambassador for the club’s soccer schools as well as working with their commercial team to help develop and support partnerships with other global sponsors and brands.
