The English international joined Liverpool on a free transfer from Manchester City and Rodgers is delighted with the qualities he has blessed his new club with.
Milner, yet to miss out on a single minute Liverpool have played this season in the Premier League, has brought with him a wealth of experience and winning mentality which he inherited from his time at Manchester City.
The 29-year old has become an integral addition after the departure of their captain Steven Gerrard. His qualities have not gone unappreciated by Liverpool manager Rodgers.
“James Milner has been absolutely exceptional,” he said ahead of Saturday’s home tie with West Ham.
“He is a proper man how tough he is, but he is an outstanding footballer and he has added massively to the squad in terms of mentality.
“He is a winner and his work with the players has been outstanding on and off the field.”
