The summer signing from Monaco came in for criticism earlier in the season after some below-par performances.
The Frenchman has now struck up a good partnership with Sotirios Kyrgiakos in the heart of the Rangers defence and he feels he is now beginning to show his best form.
"I have been trying to adapt to life in Scotland as quickly as possible," Rodriguez told Rangers News.
"Obviously, I have spent the past 27 years in France with the sun on my back, so it is a lot different moving here and settling into a new country. But I am already feeling quite good and happy here.
"On the pitch, the football is also a totally different style to what I was used to.
"It is taking me some time to adapt to the Scottish way of playing but I feel quite comfortable now.
"I think my form has been okay - I know I have played better in some games than others - but I will always give my best for the team.
"The manager has tried different players and different systems in the defence and it was difficult to get a balance.
"Now, though, in the last few matches, I have been playing with Soto and I feel we are forming a good partnership."
