People have been singling out Cammy the past few weeks in terms of endeavour showed but for me you could never question Darren’s either. When fit he was much more than committed and even when playing with an injury he still clearly gave his all.

He was one guy I’d hoped would be here to help next season BOTH on and off the park. 

Thank you Darren Odea!

Always gave 100% and looked like it mattered to him, something that quite a few players he has played alongside him with us would do well to emulate wherever they end up.

 

Hopefully he stays coaching with Dundee but good luck to the guy, I have no doubt he will be a success.

O'Dea does genuinely come across as someone who has always been grateful and understood he's been very privileged to make a career out of a hobby. In isolation, it doesn't really mean much, but it is very telling that he's captained a few teams and always received top praise wherever he has been. McPake in 14/15 was an immense defender and although his form dipped a bit in 15/16, we badly needed a player in that sort of mould to come in and O'Dea was a perfect fit. The sad thing about his time here is that we never got to see McPake and O'Dea at their best together, it could have been our equivalent to Huth and Morgan for Leicester!

I notice he's said 'full time football' in the statement. I look forward to a frustrating day at Gayfield or Recreation Park next season.....

Two to three years ago, I was criticising him for being too slow and playing boys onside too often but he proved me wrong on so many occasions since with committed passionate performances whilst most around him were going through the motions.

Never forget his goal celebration after smashing that penalty home to keep us up two seasons ago.

Good luck and thanks Darren.
