Rodgers Insists Rangel's Absence Was Due To Injury

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers insists Angel Rangel's late dismissal from yesterday's first team was because of an injury, not because of a potential move to Blackpool.

The right back was named in the starting line-up to face Hull City at the KC Stadium yesterday at 2:30pm, but shortly before kick-off he was withdrawn and replaced by Albert Serran.

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers was keen to make it clear that he missed the game because of injury:

'Blackpool are obviously speaking to the chairman and the board,'

'But as far as I'm concerned, he's a Swansea player, he is a good professional and committed.

'It is just unfortunate that sometimes you take a knock and it wasn't worth the risk.'

'He was warming up and in the team to play,'

'But he's just had a niggle and came in and I have to take advice from the medical people here and do we risk maybe losing him?

Because at the moment he is a Swansea player.

'I've got to make a decision do I start him and it becomes worse? Or do I rest him and hopefully in the next 48 hours it clears up - I chose the latter.


There was strong speculation last week during the Holland Tour when he missed the second game against VC Sparta, as he held talks with the club about his future at Swansea City. He was back against Ado Den Haag, but rather reluctantly as he is looking to join a Premiership club before the end of the month.
