Robbie Fowler - Liverpool's fifth highest goalscorerKenny Dalglish has been responding to Robbie Fowler overtaking him in the Liverpool goalscoring charts.

The Kop legend was responding to newspaper reports this morning that he'd be making a congratulatory telephone call to Fowler after the current Reds striker overtook him as the club's fifth highest goalscorer on Saturday.

Kenny sarcastically said "I won't be ringing him. He's now scored more goals than me so I'm not talking to him. In fact, I wish he hadn't come back, who's bright idea was that?"

The esteemed former Liverpool player and manager then added, in a more serious tone: "Nah, it's a fantastic achievement for Robbie and I'm delighted for him, he's a great lad.

"Once he returned it was inevitable he was going to overtake me and I have no problems with that. It's not like I was the top scorer of all-time. That title belongs to Rushie and he'll take some beating."
