Rodgers denies shackling Gerrard

http://www.ontheminute.com/news/news.php?news=40937

Brendan Rodgers has denied constraining Steven Gerrard's natural abilities for Liverpool.

Gerrard has had to take on a more disciplined role in Rodgers' team with less license to wonder around the pitch as he has tended to previously.

"I don't think there has been a clear change in his game in terms of what I have asked him to do," the Liverpool manager said.

"Steven has always been the player who makes the difference over the years and, OK, he may not have had the goals this season that he has wanted but he has still been effective. There has been nothing more or less I have asked in terms of defensive responsibilities."
