Rodgers played a young team for their 5-3 win at Europa League opponents Young Boys of Bern last week.
He said: "It was great, a really exciting performance.
"The goals we conceded weren't the best and I was disappointed with that but we scored five goals away from home and we introduced some new players to the group. That filled me with great pride.
"Speaking to one or two of the supporters afterwards, they absolutely loved seeing the excitement and creativity of the youngsters.
"When you bring young players in they have no fear, and we played with no fear."
