The Reds had jumped to a 3-0 lead at halftime.
"I'm not the type of coach who only wants to win," said Rodgers. "I worry about how the team plays and how we can control a game.
"In the final third of the pitch, it was hard to argue with the fact that we were outstanding - the movement, the combination play to arrive in there.
"But we've still got a lot of work to do behind that because the lack of control in the game was disappointing.
"Second half was nowhere near what we want it to be, but without playing great, we won the game and that was something that in the first season (of his reign) we were guilty of - playing ever so well but not getting the result."
