The Hoops led three times, but on each occasion they were pegged back by the Premier League leaders as Pep Guardiola’s side eventually earned a point.
Rodgers said: “I can’t criticise the team, but there are always elements we can be better in. We were brilliant, the pressing and the energy. Every time we went forward we looked like we could score.
“Apart from the Barcelona game, these players have been operating at a high level this season. Now, to do it against that team, it was a magnificent performance.
“How we defend is what we’ve been working on. All my teams have played with that intent. We have players that are developing and evolving all the time.
“Tonight, how they played and performed was top class. That will give them confidence going forward.”
The draw means that Celtic are the first team to prevent City from winning since Guardiola took charge.
Borussia Monchengladbach are bottom of the group without a point following their 2-1 loss at home to Barcelona after leading at the interval.
