Rodgers couldn't find enough superlatives for the skipper for their midweek win over Fulham.
"His pass the other night was out of this world. And then composure for the penalty. That's a world-class player," said the manager.
"You hear the term, and there's many who show you that quality when their team is 2-0 up in a game, but you see a real world-class player when you're down, and that's what Steven does."
