The Reds can go five points clear at the top of the table with three games to play should they beat Norwich at Carrow Road this afternoon, making them heavy favourites for the title.
Rodgers has already been compared to some of the Anfield greats over the years, but an unexpected title push has endeared him to supporters even more.
Gerrard hopes that the former Swansea boss will be at Liverpool for many years after he has retired.
“He’s a phenomenal man for his age (41),” Gerrard told the Telegraph.
“I think he’s going to grow into one of the world’s best managers and I hope he is here long after I am gone.
“I hope he is here for many, many years because this club is in great hands. Whatever happens now until the end of the season, it’s safe.
“He’s a winner, he’s hungry for success, he does the right things, he treats players well, he doesn’t try and control the football club, or get involved in stuff that has nothing to do with him.”
