'Hat trick boy' Gerrard says comparison with club great Rush is 'stupid'

London, Wed, 14 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar 14(ANI): Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, who scored a scintillating hat trick against Everton on Tuesday, has rubbished comparisons with club great Ian Rush.


Rush was the last Liverpool player to have scored a hat trick against Everton during a Merseyside derby in 1982, when he smashed four goals in a 5-0 victory at Goodison Park.


Gerrard felt honored to have followed his boyhood hero on his 400th Premier League appearance for the club, but insisted he cannot be compared to the Reds' all-time leading scorer.


"That makes it more special, because Ian Rush was a hero of mine. I looked up to him for a long time and watched many videos of him," The Mirror quoted an ecstatic Gerrard, as saying.


"But let's not be stupid. I'm not comparing myself to Ian Rush's scoring record and he scored 380-odd goals for the club. He was a different breed," he said.


"To beat Everton is always special and to get three goals is a little extra-special. I have to give my team-mates credit and Luis Suarez put two of them on a plate for me," he added. (ANI)
