Swansea City fullback Neil Taylor says Brendan Rodgers deserves the Manager of the Year gong.

Rodgers is being linked with the big clubs after an outstanding first season in the Premier League with the Swans.

And left-back Taylor said: "He definitely deserves to win Manager of the Year. People were comparing us to Blackpool at the start of the season, now they are comparing us to Barcelona.

"It's all down to the manager - he's brilliant."
