Swansea boss Rodgers hails his "brilliant" Britton

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers is delighted with Leon Britton's form this season.

Rodgers hailed midfielder Britton, 29, who has played in all four divisions for the club.

Rodgers said: "I suppose the traditional British outlook on players is that they have to be over 6ft, quick and strong.

"Leon, along with a number of others, showed a wonderful demonstration of technique, talent and an ability to pass.

"He's about two stone soaking wet, so he cannot really tackle, but what he does brilliantly, is screen and block."
