Liverpool legend Rush expects big things from Ngog

Liverpool legend Ian Rush admits he's a big fan of David Ngog.

The French youngster struck in Liverpool's 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday.

Rush sees something in the 20-year-old Frenchman to suggest he can be a star in the Barclays Premier League.

"The most obvious quality is that he can score goals," said Rush, who scored 346 times in 660 games for Liverpool, to

"The goal against Stoke earlier this season was merely the last-minute flourish to a game which was already won.

"But the winner at Leeds in the Carling Cup was both important and very well taken, while Sunday's finish was arguably his coolest and most significant yet.

"David is still rough around the edges, but the Anfield coaching staff are clearly working hard on him and he has undoubted potential.

"The experience of scoring a winning goal against United will only help his development."
