Cape Town - Brendan Rodgers was less forthcoming over the latest reports of his supposed strained relationship with Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.
Gerrard has confirmed he will leave at the end of the season, but the midfielder says he would have stayed at Anfield had he been offered a new deal last year -- a claim to which Rodgers would not respond.
"There is nothing more to add," said Rodgers.
"Everything has been said on that situation that needs to be said. Steven spoke openly and honestly on it.
"He elaborated, he is happy where he is at and where he is going, done all the interviews.
"There is no doubt Steven is still a top class player and has been that world class player for many years and him moving on leaves a void on and off the pitch.
"But the club has to keep moving forward to bring the best players we can to this wonderful football club. It's an opportunity for other players to grab the mantra."
