Liverpool boss Rodgers: Gerrard has silenced doubters in new role

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes Steven Gerrard has silenced his doubters over his new role.

The Liverpool skipper has been deployed in a holding midfield role by Rodgers recently rather than the box-to-box part he has spent his career performing in.

Rodgers said: "If anyone ever questioned whether Steven Gerrard can play as a controlling midfielder then he put on one of the best performances I've seen for a long, long time.

"I thought he was sensational in that role - opening up the game from behind, his exhibition in blocking, when he marked space, when he marked a man.

"He controlled the game and it was wonderful."
