'It was an amazing goal'

Leroy Fer has backed Barrie McKay to produce more “amazing” goals after the Scot opened his account for Swansea City.

McKay’s stunning strike from just inside the penalty area proved the difference last weekend as the Swans won 1-0 at Bolton.

The midfielder found the top corner after a corner was cleared in front of his path in the 15th minute.

And Fer is confident the 23-year-old will give Graham Potter’s side plenty more moments of magic.

“It was an amazing goal,” said Fer. “Bersant (Celina) totally mishit his strike and the ball eventually fell to Barrie. He put his laces through it and found the top corner.

“I’m really happy for Barrie because he’s worked really hard to get back into the team.

“We know what kind of player he is – he’s capable of scoring these amazing goals. He’s a matchwinner.

“The challenge for him now is to keep producing these moments of magic because he has that quality in his locker, and I’m confident he will do that.”
