Rodgers praised the support given to his team - and had a cheeky dig at fans of arch-rivals Cardiff, who missed out on promotion through the play-offs and sacked manager Dave Jones on Monday.
Rodgers said: "What you've shown over the course of the season - and when the game was at 3-2 yesterday - was real support.
"I've seen other times when the supporters boo their team - not too far from here - but thankfully we have supporters who love the city, the team and will love seeing us in the Premier League next year.
"On behalf of everyone on the bus, enjoy your summer. We are looking forward to next season. We are Premier League."
