Liverpool boss Rodgers: Gerrard can play in any position

Liverpool boss Brendan Rogers feels Steven Gerrard can play in any position.

Rodgers has employed Gerrard in a defensive role this season.

"I think people wondered about his position and whether it would affect him, moving back into that controlling role," Rodgers told reporters gathered at Melwood.

"But I think there are a couple of things with Steven. We've moved him back into that position and yet it hasn't stopped his goal-threat. He's scored nine goals in his last 11 Premier League games.

"He can dictate the game from behind. He's a player that I think, because of his incredible intelligence and ability, that if you give him enough time, he could play in any position on the field.

"For most of his career, he's played as an attacking player and he's been one of the world-class players."
