There has been plenty of uproar surrounding the 19-year old winger who told England manager Roy Hodgson he was 'feeling tired' and did not want to start in Sunday's Euro2016 qualifier against Estonia.
Suggestions have arisen that Rodgers placed pressure on the Three Lions to give the young gun a rest during the international break but the Anfield boss has denied those claims.
"I'm fed up reading about is club v country, claims we intervened and put pressure on Roy Hodgson," said Rodgers.
"The decision not to play him was a managerial decision. I haven't said a single word but have to say I have never seen such rubbish written over the past few days."
Rodgers added: "At no point did Raheem Sterling say he didn't want to play for England.
"The boy is being hung out to dry and I dare say the criticism will continue for a few more weeks to come because of this."
