Speculation surfaced last month that members of the Swansea squad were unhappy under new manager Michael Laudrup's regime.

The Swans have climbed into the top half of the Premier League table and Spanish defender Rangel believes their form has silenced false talk of discontent in the dressing room.

He told the Daily Express: "Everyone is happy and it's important that we keep going in the same direction.

"A month ago people were talking about unrest. We always knew there was none within the squad and the motivation has come from the players wanting to prove that it was all talk."

Swansea take on surprise high-fliers West Brom at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night and Rangel hopes his side can put a stop to their hot run of form.

He added: "They're the surprise of the season. But at some point they have to lose and hopefully they will on Wednesday."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
