Swansea City's Angel Rangel ruled out for six weeks

Swansea City captain Angel Rangel is ruled out for another six weeks following surgery on his groin.

Swansea City captain Angel Rangel has been ruled out for the next six weeks following groin surgery.

The defender underwent the operation to correct a problem that has seen him sidelined since the beginning of the year.

"Swansea City skipper Angel Rangel is expected to return to first-team training in six weeks following successful surgery," read an official statement from the club.

"The Spaniard went under the knife in London on Monday to cure a groin problem, and he is set to play a part in the club's Premier League run-in after the successful procedure."

Rangel has made just six appearances for the Swans this term due to persistent injury problems, least featuring in their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on January 2.
