The former Welsh international, who remains Liverpool’s record goalscorer, recalls a number of Norwich/Liverpool matches from the 80s and 90s.

“I can vividly remember the 5-0 win over Norwich in the third round of the FA Cup (January 4, 1986) back in 1986,” says Rush.

“Not only was it a victory that started our run through to the final that season, but there was also really heavy snowfall during the match.

“Norwich always gave us a good game and there were plenty of high-scoring matches between us,” reflects Rush.

“Like now, they played football the right way and came and had a go, which would mean the matches were pretty open as a result.”

“When you think of Norwich, most Liverpool fans will think of our last game of the 1993-94 season when they came to town and got a 1-0 win through a Welsh team-mate of mine, Jeremy Goss,” confirms Rush.

“It was the final match in front of the old standing Kop and an emotional day for the supporters. Norwich were a very decent outfit then, the season they got a number of famous victories in the UEFA Cup.”

For the full interview with Rush make sure you grab you copy of ‘On The Ball City’ at Carrow Road on Sunday.

Programmes will be available from vendors en route to Carrow Road and also from the Canary Stores, ticket office, Yellows and the kiosks inside the stadium.
