Rodgers believes brighter days lay ahead for the Hoops under the stewardship of new manager Harry Redknapp.
He explained: "In Harry, they've got no greater man to go in there and rescue them from where they're at. He went into Tottenham in a situation that was difficult and did a brilliant job over a number of years there.
"He's gone in, he knows what he wants and I'm sure January probably can't come quickly enough for him.
"We understand it will be a difficult game, but we're really focused on this period of games because we know it's important for us. We had a terrific result and performance against Fulham. We were disappointing the other night but you've got to bounce back and that's what we'll look to do at the weekend.
"It's the type of league where somebody sitting at the bottom of the table isn't going to be an easy game. It'll be a tough match for us, but our focus is on our own game - and we know if we can bring our 'A Game' into most games then we've got a great chance of winning."
