Afterwards, Rodgers told his post-match press conference: "I'm delighted with the players at the moment. I don't think they could do anymore.
"I'm disappointed with the goal [we conceded] and I mentioned that at half-time. We're always looking for perfection and to concede from a corner was disappointing.
"Overall, we're in good shape. We're continually working hard and always striving for ways to be better.
"The players have travelled all over the world [this pre-season] - their passports have been well and truly stamped on this pre-season! But their attitude has remained the same.
"We go into our last game at the weekend [against Celtic], which will be a great way to finish off the pre-season in Dublin. I've got no doubt we'll be firing on all cylinders by the time Stoke City comes.
"I'm very pleased with everything, but we must strive to be better."
