Rush has also backed Thiago Alcantara to start producing his best, adding: “He’s a world class player. Full stop. When he first came into the side, especially against Everton away, I thought he was fantastic.
“I think having a few injuries has not helped him. I think he’s coming back and slowly maybe taking a little bit of time to get used to the English Premier League.
“But for me, he’s a world class player and he will adapt for Liverpool. I’m pretty certain of that. It just maybe changes the dimension a bit in the midfield but I would have him in my team all day long.”
He also believes Liverpool can still retain the Premier League title this season, despite being 13 points behind league leaders Manchester City.
