Britton pays Rodgers tribute

Rodgers missed his club’s 1-0 defeat at Arsenal on Saturday having
returned to Northern Ireland after his dad, Malachy, died. Britton
and Swansea were left devastated by the news and the midfielder has
paid tribute to his boss. “We knew the manager was with his family
in Northern Ireland,” he said in The Sun. “Everyone is devastated
for him and our thoughts are with him and his family. He has been
unbelievable. “He was in training on Friday even though he probably
wasn’t feeling good and he has been preparing us for the game. “The
manager has been so professional at such a difficult time for him
and that speaks so much about the person. “He will be proud of the
performance, but it would have been even better if we had scored
and come away with a draw. But we will go on for another day.”
