He added: "I am sure once we pay the tributes to the families we can get on with the football. A lot of work has been done and hopefully Sunday will pass off peacefully and well and we can talk about the tributes and football."
And in order to calm tensions between the two sides,
United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has written a letter
to his club's fans, which will be distributed at Anfield, and he states: "Our rivalry with Liverpool is based on a determination to come out on top. It cannot and should never be based on personal hatred."
Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler
feels Suarez should commemorate the Munich air disaster of 1958 by laying flowers at the United end and Evra should pay tribute to the 96 Liverpool fans killed at Hillsborough in 1989 by doing the same at the Kop.
But Rodgers does not expect any more issues between the two.
"I think enough has been said and written about that over the last year. This has been ongoing and everything to say about this has been said. There is nothing else I can add other than you just move on.
"I said when I first came in here, it was an episode that just went right through last season. It is a new season, another game. We look at both sets of players to respect it.
"Having worked here with Luis Suarez over the course of the last few months, he is a good guy, a good man. Ethically he is very strong, so I am sure there will be no problems at the weekend."
