The Club was once again well represented on the international stage over the past fortnight, but Rodgers confirmed that everyone has returned to Belvoir Drive in good shape.
"They’ve all come back, all fine, and all fit and well," Rodgers said on Thursday. "The training squad is super competitive and everyone is fighting, not just to play, but also to be in the matchday squad.
It’s a long season and we’re really looking forward to this game against a top-class team.Brendan Rodgers
"The nature of this squad is that they are very keen to improve and get better. It’s a long season and we’re really looking forward to this game against a top-class team."
Rodgers was also asked to provide an update on the fitness of midfielder Matty James, who is recovering from surgery on his Achilles and is due for a spell on the sidelines.
The Northern Irishman continued: "He had an operation a few weeks ago so that’s the reason he wasn’t in the squad for this period of the season, but apart from that, everyone is involved and working.
"He’s till a very important member of our squad. He’s got huge talent. He’s just been so, so unfortunate. I really like him a lot, both as a guy and a football player.
"We’re not putting a timeline on it. He’s working tirelessly to get back and we’ll see how it goes over the next few months."
