His old club Manchester City won the title on Sunday and his boss at Aston Villa was fired within hours.
But yesterday Shay was sunning himself in Spain – alongside TV legend Sir Bruce Forsyth!
The goalkeeper sent hearty congratulations to his former colleagues at City within an hour of the incredible victory.
But his own side lost 2-0 at Norwich and manager Alex McLeish was quickly shown the door.
But the 36-year-old was quickly off to the Med to get some rest time before the Euro 2012 challenges ahead next month.
And what better way to start your holiday than saying a quick ‘Ola’ to Strictly presenter Bruce Forsyth.
On football matters, the Donegal man tweeted: “Sorry to see McLeish go as he is a good man. But the fans wishes have been granted so we need to respect them as they are the soul of club.”
