Liverpool icon Rush sings praises of Kyrgiakos

Liverpool icon Ian Rush has praised the impact of summer arrival Sotirios Kyrgiakos.

The Greece defender has added to the atmosphere at Melwood and impressed in recent games.

Rush told liverpoolfc.tv: "Sotirios Kyrgiakos was Liverpool's best player again in the win over Bolton.

"Kevin Davies can be a real handful but the Greek refused to be bullied and won every header.

"He has come into the side and done a great job. With Daniel Agger now fit, Rafa Benitez has a big decision to make ahead of the derby. Kyrgiakos is solid defensively but Agger is comfortable on the ball and offers you more going forward."
