He might not have been the fastest, nor the most prolific of goalscorers, but Dirk Kuyt is widely regarded as a legend at Liverpool Football Club.

The Dutchman spent six years at Anfield and endeared himself to the club's supporters with his immense work rate and passion.

And there were some incredible moments along the way.

In 2008, against a 10-man Inter Milan at home in the Champions League knockout stages, Kuyt scored late on to help secure a famous 2-0 victory.

And three years later, during a 3-1 win over Manchester United, the 36-year-old scored a hat-trick to blow the Premier League title race wide open.

Kuyt's departure to Fenerbahce in 2012 marked a sad day for Liverpool fans but, four years on, he still claims to be an "adopted Scouser".

In the below video at 0:14, Kuyt brilliantly recalls how United fans shouted "you Scouse b*****d" at him during the recent 4-0 defeat with Feyenoord at Old Trafford, and that it made him feel proud to have played for Liverpool.

He said: "You know I played for six years for Liverpool, it was the best time of my life.

"Last week (Nov 24) we played against Manchester United. I think you know we beat them in Rotterdam 1-0, but unfortunately we lost the game 4-0 at Old Trafford.

"One thing happened during the game, 60,000 supporters shouted against me 'you Scouse b*****d'.

"Normally when your rivals shout at you it's not the best thing that can happen to you, but actually it made me proud because I felt proud to be named a Scouser - an adopted Scouser.

"Because for me Scousers are good people; hardworking people; committed people and people who never give up."

As if Liverpool fans needed even more reason to love Kuyt.
