... Shane Ferguson is watching his career go down the pan.
On loan at Birmingham for a second season, Newcastle’s Ferguson couldn't even get in Lee Clark's squad for the Championship game with Charlton at the weekend ... never mind on the pitch.
Ferguson's future is on the line
But he is still a regular in Northern Ireland squads, showing the Ulstermen still have faith in him ... or they don't have anybody else with Premier League experience.
There is only one fixture for Northern Ireland this week as they travel to Greece for a qualifier on Tuesday.
Will Fergie play?
