The Reds boss has been delighted by the manner in which the Slovakian centre-back has re-established himself at Anfield this term.
"Martin has been a colossus for us throughout this season," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.
"His performances speak for themselves. I think he's been the top centre-half in the Premier League, alongside Vincent Kompany.
"I see a more complete defender now. I have great admiration for him."
