The 19-year-old, making his first league start for the club since being recalled from his loan spell with Derby County, struck the outside of the post with his first-half effort – the closest either side came to breaking the deadlock.
Rodgers, who was quoted by BBC Sport, said of the performance: “I had no qualms about putting him in, it was a brilliant performance. He’s got a wonderful temperament and technique and tactically he was very, very good coming into that system, knowing when to go forward and when to tuck in.”
