Brendan Rodgers is delighted with his side's first season in the Premier League.

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers has praised his players for their performances in the club's debut Premier League season.

The Swans were tipped to go down at the start of the campaign but the Welsh side have surprised everyone and sit 12th in the table with their style of football attracting plaudits from all over English football.

Rodgers said he is happy with the team following their 1-1 draw at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

"We have got to keep moving, but I am so proud of the players' achievements so far," Rodgers said.

"To sit 11th (now 12th) in the table with so many great clubs at this level is fantastic.

"When we came into this level we were the new Blackpool, and we sit here today and people call us the new Barcelona. That shows you how far the players have progressed."

Swansea next face relegated Wolves on Saturday.
