​Manchester City youngster Brandon Barker got off to a good start on his loan move to Championship Rotherham as the tricky winger scored a superb strike on debut for the Millers.

The 19-year-old, known for his pace and set of skills, cut in from the right-hand side and unleashed a fierce shot which flew past the Ipswich goalkeeper.


Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn, however, expressed his sympathy for Barker as he felt he didn't get much help from his teammates as they fell to a 4-1 defeat against the Tractor Boys.

“He has got great ability, Brandon. He did one or two things. He opened them up. But, to be fair to him, I felt sorry for him, Redfearn commented after the game.


“He wasn’t getting any help and, sadly, it was the experienced players who let us down. It was a disappointing day.”


Barker recently signed a new four-year deal at the Etihad and was described by former youth coach Patrick Vieira as 'a proper talent.'
