Rodgers believes he should still be in charge, despite being dumped and replaced by Jurgen Klopp three years ago.
He told The Times: “I would still have been sacked for sure.
“You only need to look at the evidence all around. Not in modern football. Not in new football.
“No one wants to wait for anything. At the end of that season I signed a four-year deal. I was going to be the one, the person to take the club on. Eighteen months later that's it."
He added: “Liverpool supporters take great pride in that team, the football we played, how close we came from being eighth when I came in. We probably moved too quickly. It created expectancy.
“From time to time I think of it. But the memories are incredible, the journey to get there. I don't think of the 'what ifs'."
