UTV NEWS POLL
Who do you think will win the 2013/14 Premiership title?
In only his second season with the Anfield club, and after a rocky start to his reign, fans could be forgiven for thinking Rodgers could now be the man to lead the team to a long-awaited trophy.
In his home village of Carnlough, there is definitely plenty of buzz, with one local telling UTV: "Every week there's a match on in the pub and the pub's buzzing, just to support Brendan.
"If it's not Liverpool, it's for Brendan anyway."
Liverpool have endured a 24-year drought when it comes to league titles, last winning the old First Division title in 1990 back when it was the highest tier in English football.
This year, just four games stand between the team and the Premier League trophy.
"It's an incredible achievement and, against all the odds, we're where we are and we're still fighting," Rodgers said.
Liverpool are top of the table by merit and, if people didn't think they could win the title, then now they're thinking again.

But Rodgers has long stressed the importance of not getting carried away and just taking each game as it comes.
"We don't think too far ahead - that's the message and that's always been the message," he said.
"With four games to go, there are still a lot of points to play for. And Manchester City have got a couple of games in hand as well. We've just got to concentrate on ourselves and keep doing the job.
"Hopefully 10 games becomes 11 next week. We'll just concentrate on the next game."
Liverpool have only managed an 11-game winning streak twice - once under Kenny Dalglish and once under Rafa Benítez.
Rodgers has previously said that he would leave the title speculation to others and former Liverpool player Robbie Fowler has declared the title is now "Liverpool's to lose".
Speaking to talkSPORT's Alan Brazil show, Fowler added: "I don't think people will get carried away and say: 'We're going to win this or that ...'
"But the victory over Manchester City was a massive statement for everyone."
Liverpool's captain Steven Gerrard also stressed the importance of Sunday's 3-2 win over title rivals Manchester City.
"For the first 30-35 minutes, I thought we blew the so-called best team in the league away. And it could have been three or four," he said.
"I don't think 2-0 is ever enough against the top sides in this league. But it's all about getting the job done, no matter how you do it, and thankfully we got it done in the end."
You always know with the character in this squad, that we're always going to fight until the end.
Steven Gerrard, LFC captain
Gerrard added: "The journey I've had all the way through the years, there have been ups and downs. At the moment, I'm loving every minute of it.
"I feel 21 again, playing with all these top players. It's probably going to be the biggest month of my career coming up now. I'll give it everything I've got."
Liverpool's latest big win came as Premier League games over the weekend delayed their kick-offs by seven minutes, to mark the Hillsborough disaster that saw 96 people lose their lives.
On 15 April 1989, Liverpool's FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest was abandoned at 3.07pm, due the crush which also injured hundreds more fans.
Minute silences were observed at all the weekend games, with players from all clubs wearing black armbands to mark the 25th anniversary of the tragedy.
