The former Liverpool striker, who presented the trophy to his old club, told the Liverpool Echo: ‘It still didn’t dampen my spirits as I’m still celebrating that fantastic win!’
Rush, who became a UEFA ambassador in 2017 for the first time, took up the role again for this year’s European final.
He added: ‘It was an absolute honour to hand the trophy to Liverpool, who more than deserved the trophy!’
Rush, who enjoyed two brilliant spells at Liverpool during his stellar career, won the European Cup back in 1984 for the Reds.
The 57-year-old thoroughly enjoyed his time in Madrid, seeing Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Premier League rivals Tottenham 2-0 thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.
