Sturridge's goals meant for the first time since Ian St John and Roger Hunt 50 years ago, the club has two players who have reached 20 league goals in a season.
It has happened only six times previously and in four of those campaigns they went on to win a league title - twice in Division One and twice in Division Two.
"It is a wonderful achievement from Daniel. Since January when he came in he has been exceptional," said Rodgers.
"He probably wasn't at the top of his game so it was nice he comes out and gets his goal.
"I don't see him and Luis as a pair, they are both soloists, they have different qualities but long may it continue that they carry on scoring goals."
