The Frenchman was in target twice for the Hoops as they were denied by their famous victory by their rigid visitors, Rodgers hold coming to Celtic was the right move.
The Northern Irish man cumulate praise for the 20 year old after he scored two goals for them and they drawed against Manchester City in the champions league by 3-3.
The Frenchman Dembele netted the first goal for them just after three minutes, and in the early stage in the second half he also score the second goal for them.
City managed to comeback three times in that match with goals from Fernandinho, Raheem Sterling and Nolito, but the Northern Irish man is focused on his 20 year old youngster.
"We're fortunate to have him," Rodgers said of Dembele. "He was coveted by a number of teams but his agent is a clever guy.
"Does he go to a so-called better league and sit on the bench and not get so many games, or does he come to a big club with an opportunity to develop and invest some time into his development, and then step up if that's what he wants to do?
"He really bullied the back four, but he's more than that – he's got a wonderful touch.
"You saw his agility for the third goal. He's a huge talent."
They are first team who has managed to gain some points from the Manchester City this season, and the first side to take a lead against them, celtic players have mixed emotion after they slip out to take the three points.
He said: "We're disappointed with the goals we conceded. We can analyse all three and we can do better. They got a bit lucky with the first one.
"I thought the performance of the team was absolutely outstanding at this level, to perform like that. The players deserve great credit. To play against Manchester City and perform like that, it was incredible.
"A very small percentage of us feels we could have done better with the goals, especially the second and the third. Everything else was outstanding."
