QPR manager Ian Holloway has previously claimed Caulker will be like a new signing and it appears the former Tottenham and Liverpool man will be staying at Loftus Road this season.
And the Celtic manager is happy with the options he has in central defence to cover Dedryck Boyata's absence with midfielder Nir Bitton able to fill in as are Mikael Lustig and Kristoffer Ajer also able to play there.
“We won’t be getting someone in,” Rodgers confirmed to the Scotsman. “We have Bitton who can play there. If we are talking about in Scottish football and the ball getting smashed up the pitch, then you can have two big guys who can head it.
“But we are not playing that way. We can cope. We have Ajer who’s 6ft 5ins, but he can play. We’ll have Boyata back in September, Lustig can play there. We don’t need to worry about centre half. “Bitton can play there and the way we play, he can slot in comfortably. I thought he was outstanding on Wednesday night. He had composure and at 6ft 4ins he can compete in the air. He was very good - as was Jozo.
“Bitton is a very, very good player. He’s a controlling player in midfield but in that role we have Scott Brown, and we also have Eboue Kouassi to come in, who is a big talent.
“But I like to have a midfielder who can play centre half. That allows the team to play through and get more attackers on the field. Nir is top class in his work.
“He’s very good for our squad, he can play a number of positions and he understands how I want to work. He’s someone the players like and he showed his importance the other night.”
