Swans moved onto 42 points following 3-0 win over Blackburn, and although delighted with their performance the Northern Irishman is refusing to accept they are clear of relegation
The Welsh club overcame a lacklustre Blackburn side on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium, with goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson, Nathan Dyer and an own goal from Scott Dann helping them to an emphatic 3-0 victory.
The win moves the Swans onto 42 points for the season and stops a run of four defeats in a row, yet despite passing the 40-point barrier, Rodgers is refusing to accept his club are set for another season in the top flight.
When asked if he would be celebrating his side’s safety, Rodgers told Sky Sports: “Not until it’s mathematically safe.
"Once you arrive at 39 points as a newly promoted team in the middle of March, the finish line is very close so maybe that was something the players were subconsciously aware of [regarding their recent four game losing streak]."
Swansea’s debut season in the Premier League has seen the side lauded for their attractive play and their home form.
Despite a successful first campaign in the league, Rodgers is refusing to rest on his laurels and says the side want to finish as high up the league as possible.
He continued: "We’ve got 42 points but we don’t want to finish on that, we’ve got four more games to go and our only concentration now is to recover well and look to Bolton next week."
While Rodgers says he was disappointed with his side’s showing in midweek against QPR, he insists he can understand why his players perhaps took their eye off the ball a little.
He continued: "We’ve lost games against Everton, Newcastle and Tottenham but our performance level had been good, but QPR disappointed us because it wasn’t really us, but I can understand maybe if we subconsciously took our mind off it a wee bit."
After stopping the rot against Steve Kean’s men, the Northern Irishman was full of praise for his players and has hailed their performance against the struggling Lancashire club.
"You could see the hunger and desire of the players, you match that with their talent and their quality and you’ll get a performance like we did today," he concluded.
