Rodgers attempted to stay upbeat after their 2-0 loss.
"We've got what we've got. A lot of young players are going to get an opportunity," said Rodgers.
"We've got some other young players and that's where we're at. I'm not here to cry. I can't do anything about it. The reality is we've got the group we've got.
"I am very proud to manage this club and I want to fight to keep us improving and moving forward."
