Rodgers has long played down the likelihood of his side winning a first league championship since 1990 and does not intend to start promoting their chances now, although he is happy for his players to use it for inspiration.
"I've not banned it (talk of the title). We have better things to talk about," he said.
"It is about improving and getting better. I don't lose sleep over it.
"We are up there on merit so of course we have an opportunity. I didn't say [we have] no chance. If you think we have a chance then write it.
"I try to not expect so much and let the players do the talking. We try to remain dignified in our work and our players are doing all the talking.
"We will focus on the next game against Cardiff. I think other teams will drop points - we may well drop points, we may not - but I can only look at our next game and I've done that since I walked through the door, and I'm not going to change."
