Former Liverpool footballer Ian Rush posed for pictures with members of Wu Tang Clan this week following an unlikely meeting with the hip-hop group in Oslo.

The former footballer, who now works behind the scenes at Liverpool FC, posed for photographs with GZA and Inspectah Deck after the US rappers arrived at the airport in Oslo at the same time as Liverpool FC, who are in Scandinavia for a pre-season tour. Rush handed the rappers a signed 2013-14 Liverpool home jersey and posed for photographs. Wu-Tang Clan will perform at the Øya festival tonight (August 7), while Liverpool have a game against Valerenga at Oslo's Ullevaal stadium.

Meanwhile, Wu-Tang members Masta Killa and Mathematics spoke to NME recently, discussing why Tupac Shakur's death changed hip-hop forever: "It was like when Bruce Lee died: it was a whole bunch of imitators," they said. Click here to watch.

Earlier this year it was reported that vocals from the late Ol' Dirty Bastard are set to feature on the forthcoming new album from Wu-Tang Clan. The rap collective's 20th anniversary album, which has the working title 'A Better Tomorrow' and looks set for a November release, will include previously unheard material from ODB, who passed away in 2004.
