Referee Slavko Vincic deemed that the Newcastle full-back was taking too long to throw the ball back into play and promptly sent him off, much to the bemusement of manager Ian Baraclough.
Northern Ireland would go on to lose the game 2-0, in what was a must-win game in order for them to stand a good chance of getting to the World Cup.
They are now six points behind second-place Switzerland with three games left to play, including their final fixture against EURO 2020 champions Italy.
