. . . Rangel delighted with Swans' home win over Newcastle


Angel Rangel hailed Swansea City’s rise to 40 points as a “fantastic achievement”, but insists Michael Laudrup’s side are determined to ensure they finish the season on a high.
A 1-0 win over Newcastle United moved the Swans onto the 40-point mark – a total commonly earmarked as the tally that secures Barclays Premier League safety.
Six days on from lifting the Capital One Cup at Wembley – a first major trophy for the club – this caps an unforgettable week for the Swans.
But Rangel, who himself went close to breaking the deadlock before Luke Moore came off the bench to strike an 86th-minute winner, insists there will be no easing up from the Swans squad.
“Getting to 40 points with ten games to go is a fantastic achievement,” said the 30-year-old.
“The first target is always to stay in the league – which we haven’t mathematically achieved yet - and then it’s the top ten.
“It’s the 100th year of the club, and we’ve already won the first big trophy for Swansea.
“So to stay in the top ten, along with what we have already achieved, would be amazing.
“But we can’t relax – we want to see how far we can go.”
Rangel also hailed the impact of super sub Moore, whose late finish settled the encounter.
Moore notched his first league goal in almost a year after he came off the bench to replace Leon Britton.
Rangel added: “I thought we played well in the first 30 minutes, while they dominated more in the second half.
“But we took our chance and Luke did very well to finish it.
“Luke is a good pro and player. You can see in training that he is ready to play and take his chance.
“He came off the bench and he certainly did that.”
