Gerrard is used predominantly as a central midfielder under Rodgers, but Aldridge believes that the captain would add more goals to the side if he were encouraged to get forward more.
"Imagine those two football brains with Stevie's imagination and talent behind them. With a triangle like that at the top end of the pitch you really would be talking.
"We need Steven to score more goals, and the way we're playing at the moment is stopping him from getting in and around the opposition penalty area as much."
Gerrard scored his 99th Premier League goal in the Reds' 3-1 win against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
