Liverpool legend Rush: Forest attacker Johnson can be great player

Liverpool and Wales legend Ian Rush believes that Nottingham Forest forward Brennan Johnson is a world class player in waiting.

Johnson has impressed with Forest so far this season in the Premier League.

Johnson came on for Wales at the World Cup in each of their group stage games, but was unable to help his side qualify for the Round of 16.

He came on for Gareth Bale at half time against England in their final match, while the score was still 0-0.

Speaking on BBC as a pundit for England's 3-0 win over Wales, Rush stated: “I would like to see what this young lad can do in this game.

“He's going to be some player this one, he's a great player."
