Ian Rush was glad to see Liverpool sign Joe Cole yesterday. The Liverpool legend believes the signing of Cole is a great one by Roy Hodgson and proves the chance of signing for the Reds is still appealing to the top players. "I think it's fantastic news for the club," Rush told LFC TV. "Joe Cole is a wonderful player and I think he left Chelsea because he wasn't getting a regular game. I was a bit surprised he didn't appear much for England in the World Cup because he's a player that can unlock any defence. "Liverpool Football Club for me is the biggest club in the world. We might not have been successful as we would have liked to have been recently, but this shows we can still attract top name players, whether that's an England international or a foreign international. "We've got a great new manager in Roy Hodgson and he knows what he wants, and he can talk these players into signing for our club. "This is the signing supporters wanted and it's a big boost for them. You look at last season when we went into it not hoping but thinking we were going to win the league. "This season people are thinking are we going to finish in the top-four. I think this sends a sign out to Liverpool supporters that the club do mean business."
