Sterling turned 18 last weekend with the club still currently locked in negotiations to tie the winger down to his first professional contract.
The teenager's stock within the game has risen considerably in six months after locking down a first team place in Liverpool's Barclays Premier League season so far as well as earning an England debut in the friendly defeat against Sweden last month.
When Rodgers was asked by reporters if he was concerned that no deal had yet been announced, he responded: "No, not at all. That will be resolved I'm sure, fairly soon."
"He's a kid who has got this special ability so that no matter what is going on, he doesn't get too involved in it.
"He focuses on his football. Hopefully it stays that way."
Sterling is already approaching 30 appearances for Liverpool this season and just earlier in the month Rodgers state that it would be foolish for the starlet not to continue his football education with the Anfield outfit.
"If you are 17 [now 18] and playing regularly, you would be very foolish not to commit yourself very quickly," Rodgers was quoted as saying at the time.
Sterling is attracting interest from plenty of big name clubs and it was only recently that Manchester United legend Willie Morgan claimed Liverpool's Sterling would be an ideal fit for the Old Trafford side.
Morgan, a former United winger himself, believes the acquisition of Sterling would continue the club's great tradition of having world class wide men like George Best, Ryan Giggs and Cristiano Ronaldo.
