The Liverpool Shirts Museum
1989-1991 Away Player Shirt
Candy continued to sponsor Liverpool in the 1989-1991 seasons. The grey away shirt for this era has significant changes - instead of adopting plain grey colour like the ones from 1987-1989, this piece shows a diamond-zigzag pattern of grey colour. For the shirts from season 1989-1990, there are no patches on the sleeves and sewn on numbers are stitched on the backside. For the season 1990-1991, Division One Football League patches are stitched on the sleeves and velveteen numbers are ironed on the backside.
Liverpool 1989-1991 Away Player Shirt - Numbered 9 belongs to Welsh striker Ian Rush.

Typical 80s Liverpool adidas era player shirts are characterised by having the beautiful embroideries.

If we view from the inner side, we can see the embroideries of both the club crest and manufacturer motif for the player shirt.
