After a shaky start to his career at Anfield having taken over from Kenny Dalglish, Rodgers' new way of working has started to show signs it is clicking into gear.
He has been fully-backed by the players during the transition and Gerrard believes the Northern Irishman, who turns 40 on Saturday, represents the new breed of manager.
"Our fans demand that we are successful and that we win and if you are looking for a young manager out there who has everything going for him who can help us achieve that success I think you pick Brendan Rodgers," he said.
"He gave up a top job in a comfortable situation at Swansea, where he'd done fantastically well, and had the bottle and the character to come and take this big job on.
"Now the responsibility and the pressure is shared with the likes of myself and Jamie (Carragher) because it is a tough club as well with the demands and expectations on a daily basis."
Liverpool has been Gerrard's club since he was eight years old and although many have lauded his loyalty - which wavered only briefly when he was tempted by a move to Chelsea - he believes some recognition is deserved in the other direction.
"It is the club I have supported since I was a boy and I'm in such a privileged position to captain the team," said the 32-year-old.
"It (a move to Chelsea) was very close but I have no regrets and am absolutely delighted I stayed loyal to Liverpool."
