The Reds have been based in Manhattan since Tuesday as part of their pre-season tour of the United States, which moves on to Charlotte in North Carolina for its fourth stage later today.
Ahead of that journey, however, Rodgers was joined by the revered figures of Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler and Ian Rush, plus chief commercial officer Billy Hogan, to pay respects at the former location of the World Trade Center.
A total of 2,977 people from 93 different nations lost their lives in the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, and the moving story of what unfolded was mapped out to the manager and company during an emotional visit.

"I would like to sincerely thank museum president Joe Daniels and retired New York firefighter Tim Brown for taking time to show us around the memorial this afternoon," said Rodgers, who laid a special 'You'll Never Walk Alone' wreath at the site.
"It was a great privilege to lead the Liverpool delegation of Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler and Billy Hogan to a site which carries great significance, not just for America but the entire world.
"I have visited Manhattan on a number of occasions, both privately and professionally and it is, without doubt, one of the greatest places on the planet, with a spirit and a character that is quite unique.
"When I found out New York was on our pre-season schedule I wanted us, as a club, to come and pay our respects where the World Trade Center once stood and hear some of the emotional, distressing, powerful but also inspiring accounts of that fateful day.
"The stories told to us by firefighter Brown were profoundly moving and touched every one of us. This visit will live in my memory for some time."
