FOWLER BREAKS DALGLISH RECORD
Robbie Fowler modestly played down his feat of overtaking Kenny Dalglish in the all-time list of Liverpool of goalscorers after netting his 173rd goal for the Reds at West Brom on Saturday.
Fowler's early tap-in at The Hawthorns means he now stands alone as the fifth most prolific striker in Liverpool history.
But while he's delighted to have reached such a momentous milestone he refuses to accept that it makes him more of a legend than Dalglish.
"It's fantastic for me but Kenny Dalglish is a proper Liverpool legend. To get anywhere near him is an achievement, so to go one past him makes me very happy," says the striker.
Fowler's record-breaking goal set the Reds up for a comfortable 2-0 win over the Baggies. It's a result that maintains the pursuit of second-placed Manchester United and soon-to-be 31-year old is refusing to throw in the towel with regards to this particular battle.
"We just have to worry about ourselves and try to win as many games as we can, but we know it is going to be difficult. If we win our games and the teams above us slip up, then we have to take advantage," he adds.
"This was an important win for us. We had a good result against Everton last week and we knew we had to do the job here. We made a good start, scored the early goal and deserved the three points at the end of the game."
