Ian Rush tells record-chasing Mohamed Salah that trophies mean more than goals

Former Liverpool striker Ian Rush will not mind if Mohamed Salah breaks his single-season scoring record for the club but said that trophies would be a better measure of the Egyptian forward's impact on Merseyside.

Salah has scored 28 goals in the Premier League this season and 36 in all competitions, the most by a Liverpool player in a debut campaign for the club.

The Egypt international has been so prolific that Rush's 47-goal tally from 65 games in the 1983-84 season is within his reach.

In an interview with ESPN, Rush, whose record season helped Joe Fagan's Liverpool capture the league title, European Cup and League Cup, said Salah's goals must have a similar effect to make his achievement even more memorable.

Liverpool are effectively out of the reckoning for the league title and are chasing second spot behind champions elect Manchester City. They have 63 points from 30 games to sit two points and one place behind second-placed Manchester United.

The club's hopes of silverware this season lie in the Champions League, where Juergen Klopp's men take on City in the first leg of the quarter-finals at Anfield on April 4.
