Bob Paisley told Ian Rush before the 1982 Merseyside derby that he would score a hat-trick against Everton at Goodison - but the striker went one further and scored four instead.
The club's all-time leading goalscorer reveals this anecdote and a host of other unique tales in his brand-new book, 'Ian Rush: My Scrapbook'.
Featuring running commentary from the man himself, the new book is packed full of classic photos and interesting artefacts from Rush's glittering career.
Shirts worn and swapped with the game's greats are included, as are the hat-trick balls Rush has collected, and the boots he has scored his famous goals in.
His father Francis first started a modest scrapbook comprising local newspaper cuttings of his son's footballing achievements in the early 1970s - and little did he realise what it would lead to.
Rush went on to become one of the world's greatest strikers and his amazing 346-goal tally for Liverpool will arguably never be surpassed.
Now, Rush has unearthed his father's original scrapbook and dusted down his many other prized personal treasures, many of which are being revealed for the first time.
And Liverpoolfc.com are happy to be able to bring you two exclusive chapters from Rush's news book. Starting with his iconic four-goal haul at the home of the Blues...
"I've relived the goals from the famous derby of 1982 when we beat Everton 5-0 at Goodison Park- and this is the ball from that game," explains Rushie.
"Bob Paisley actually said to me before the game that I was going to score a hat-trick, which was something, coming from the great man himself.
"I got the ball to keep after the match, but a lot of the signatures have wiped-off over the years.
"On the Monday after the game I asked Kevin Ratcliffe, who wasn't playing that night, could he go into training and get the Everton players to sign the ball for me.
I'm not going to say in this scrapbook what he actually said back to me, but he reluctantly took it into training and got them to sign it.
"What he didn't tell them, until after they'd signed it was what the ball was and who they were signing it for! He said if they'd have known they wouldn't have signed it.
"It was a great feeling scoring four goals against Everton.
"It was a dream come true, especially as I used to support them, and something that I'll always remember because Liverpool fans love to remind me of that game."
1984 European Golden Boot
"I was the first British player to win the European Golden Boot," continues Rush. "In other countries, like Holland, someone would come through and score 40 or 50 goals.
"I always remember Franz Beckenbauer saying no-one will win the Golden Boot playing in England or Germany because it is too competitive and the league is too hard.
"I scored 32 league goals and it is the league goals that count. Second was Marco van Basten and Nico Claesen, who later came to Tottenham.
"I was very lucky in a way because Van Basten scored something like 30 and he'd been injured for half the season in Holland. It was the year we did the treble and I think I most probably came of age.
"I was presented with the award in Paris and it has pride of place in my trophy collection because to win the Golden Boot is incredible.
"I say I scored 50 goals that year because I got 32 league goals, 16 in the cups and three in the Screen Sport Super Cup. I then got the penalty in the European Cup final so people say I got 49, but I say 50.
"This is a favourite accolade because to score 32 league goals in a season is no mean feat."
