Former Wales and Liverpool striker Ian Rush has been named as elite performance director of the Welsh Football Trust.

Rush will assist the Trust's technical director Osian Roberts to develop the next generation of Welsh players.

His part-time position will see him help out with coaching the under-16 regional and national development squads.

"I am delighted to be joining the Trust in this exciting new role," he said.

I hope to play my part in helping the trust deliver their vital work for Welsh Football

"It is great to have the opportunity to give something back to the game at grass roots level," Rush added.

"To be successful on the international stage in the future Wales must produce better players through well-structured development programmes and high-quality coaching.

"I believe the Trust is on track to achieve this and I hope to play my part in helping them to deliver their vital work for Welsh Football."

Rush's previous coaching included a stint as manager of Chester, although that lasted less than a year, and a spell working with Wales' under-17 team as coach.

The 45-year-old also worked with Liverpool's strikers in 2003 to help develop their talent.
