Neville is back to full fitness and Ferguson couldn't speak higher of his fullback for the way he's overcome injuries.
"He's had a terrible time over the last 18 months to two years," said Ferguson.
"The trouble has been he'd get back and then something else would happen. But he's able to overcome that because he's Gary Neville.
"But fortunately for us he's had no setbacks over the last few weeks.
"We're now being careful with him and that includes training. Some days we give him the day off."
