Swnasea City's season is far from over, says Angel Rangel
11th April 2016
Angel Rangel insists the Swans will "keep fighting" after creating club history with victory over Chelsea last weekend.
Gylfi Sigurdsson's first-half volley proved the difference as the Swans recorded their first win over the Blues in the Barclays Premier League.
The triumph moved the Swans onto 40 points with five games remaining. It was also a fourth win in the last six matches for Francesco Guidolin's side.
The Swans rose to 12th in the top-flight following that victory, which leaves them 13 points above third-bottom Sunderland, who have a game in hand.
But Rangel, who was presented with an award for reaching 300 appearances for the Swans prior to kick-off against Chelsea, revealed the squad are determined to finish the season on a positive note - starting at Newcastle on Saturday.
"It was a brilliant win over Chelsea. We are always looking for 40 points to stay in the league, and now we have reached that," said the 33-year-old full-back.
"We wanted to make some history on Saturday having never beaten Chelsea in the Premier League, and beating the league champions is a great achievement.
"We showed great character, we played some good football and overall it was a great performance.
"We owed our home fans a good performance because it has been a tough season.
"I think we are safe now we have reached the 40-point mark, but we still have games to play this season and we must see how far we can go now.
"Things look much brighter but we will keep fighting until the end. The season is far from over for us."
