A convincing 3-0 victory against Fulham at Craven Cottage lifted the Swans into eighth place in the table during their first Premier League season and taken them a massive 17 points above the relegation zone.
Sigurdsson struck twice in the win to take his tally to five goals and two assists since making a short-term switch from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.
And after working with the Icelandic midfielder before at Reading, Rodgers has revealed he knew Sigurdsson had the talent to help take the club to the next level.
“I knew Gylfi from before when I worked with him”, Rodgers said. "I felt to take us on to the next level we needed a midfield player that could play and be comfortable with the ball and could create and score goals on a regular basis and that’s what he has done.
“He enjoys the way I work, he enjoys the way I play and he has been first class.”
