Rodgers added: “I have always tried to create team spirit because it is about togetherness. It is about good players of course but you need togetherness and the growth of that.
“Human nature is that people respond to rewards. You go back to school if you did well in your maths, you got a little star. It gave them something to aim for.
“So now the run has started again. It might cost me a few bob but if it does I will be happy because it means we are doing all right.
“We will stick at getting three wins for now and then once I am out of money we can increase the target.”
Liverpool, meanwhile, are prepared to walk away from their interest in Inter Milan midfielder Phillipe Coutinho having tabled a final offer.
The Anfield outfit have given the Serie A side 24-hour deadline having restructured their £7.2million bid for the player so more of the fee is paid up front.
Southampton have had a higher offer accepted by Inter but Coutinho has intimated he would prefer a move to Merseyside.
And Rodgers is confident the deal will be done, and said: “We hope to do some business between now and the end of the month. The owners have been brilliant and supporting.
“We know we still need one or two additions more. The club is doing everything it possible can to assist me in that. If we can, great. If not, we'll have to review it again in the summer.”
Meanwhile, 20-year-old Academy striker Michael Ngoo will spend the rest of the season on loan at Scottish Premier League side Hearts. Ngoo will join Danny Wilson, who moved to Tynecastle on a similar deal last week.
