Legendary Liverpool striker Ian Rush has backed the "quality" Danny Ings to enjoy a goal-laden spell at Anfield.
The 23-year-old forward joined the Reds on a Bosman following the expiration of his Burnley deal in the summer.
He is yet to start a Premier League game, with £32.5m man Christian Benteke seemingly Brendan Rodgers's first-choice striker, but Rush - who scored 346 Liverpool goals - expects the youngster to be a "quality" impact player.
"I was very impressed with Danny Ings in pre-season and he is a quality player that can come on," he told Sky Sports News. "I think Liverpool have got people on the bench who can come on and win you the game now where maybe a couple of years ago we didn't have that.
"I watched him in pre-season and for me he is very clever with the way that he makes his runs. He plays off the shoulder of the defender and he makes his runs early. The likes of Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino, who could be playing alongside him, will see those runs and play him in.
"If you don't get the ball three or four times sometimes you can stop making the runs but Ings looks very sharp to me and I think he is good in the box as well."
Ings scored 11 Premier League goals last term but could not save the Clarets from relegation.
