The Reds challenged for the title right until the last day of the season, but missed out narrowly on their first Premiership in 24 years as Manchester City were crowned champions.
Rodgers was honoured for his achievements this season - which included taking Liverpool from a seventh place finish to second and qualifying for the Champions League - at the annual LMA awards dinner in London, after every manager from the top four English leagues cast their votes.
LMA chairman Howard Wilkinson said: "There can be no greater tribute to a manager and his work than a tribute awarded by his match day foes and peers.
"This evening we applaud Brendan Rodgers as he receives that most valuable award.
"Liverpool Football Club's performances and results this season have provoked memories of some of those momentous years in the past when they had to contend with those two United's, the first from Leeds, the second from Manchester. For Liverpool and Brendan, I'm sure we all hope this season marks the beginning of a new voyage and a new era."
