    O'Dea expected to start today in the cup on Sky Sports in an hour.

    "Darren always impresses me, and I think everyone knows how highly I rate him. He must be really pleased with himself.

    "He has a drive and determination that will take him far in the game.

    "He is adding to his ability and is intelligent. He has a future at Celtic."

    He didn't do very well today. He's definetely not a left back.
    I think I should the parachute, because I'm great.

    In fact, I think I should get both parachutes, in case one doesn't work.

    More than likely will start at Left Back on Sunday at Hampden vs Rangers in the League Cup Final (Naylor still injured).
    I thought you were off the drink Ronnie?

    Is he playing CB or LB?

    Took his goal very well and I thought it was very mature of him to just tell Lennon he couldn't go much longer at the end of the first half of extra time.

    I have rated O'Dea for a long time and at this time, I definately think he is worth a call up to the Irish squad.

    Solid enough performance, took his goal well, very assured on the ball particularly in some tight positions in defence where he was comfortable retaining posession. Happy to either take on his man or at least find a hooped jersey with his outfield pass. Plenty of overlapping runs as well.

    High pressure game - great experience for him.

    Heres hoping he can retain his place for the remaining 10 or so games of the season and that Strachan doesnt being Naylor back in when he's fit. So far O'Dea has slotted in well and doesnt deserve to be dropped IMO.

    He really needs games at the moment & was surprised when Strachan prevented him from going out on loan to Burnley in January.

    I think he has great potential and showed today, as he did in the Champions League last season, that he can soak up pressure and won't let the big occasion get the better of him.

    I just don't think he will feature heavily in Strachan's plans & a move away from Celtic might be his best option - long term.

    Possibly, though Naylor is not the answer at LB. Celtic were crying out for one in the summer and we failed to secure one, likewise in January. He didnt let O'Dea go anywhere because he needed cover (John Kennedy being particualrly doubtful). OK so LB is not his natural/favoured position but he is young and athletic and can do a job there, possibly he might be winning Strachans trust, certainly to play at LB for the forseeable future.... Lets hope so.

    The kid looked good !

    I can certainly see a great future with Celtic and internationally. Very composed on the ball and a cracker of a header for the goal.

    CELTIC cup hero Darren O'Dea last night revealed he could still seek a move out of Parkhead if he fails to secure a regular first-team place.

    friend of mine sent me this about that article
    I think this was taken from a live interview type session he did on
    radio scotland on tuesday bight. i never heard it all but i heard this
    bit. they were quizzing him about being involved in champs league and
    if he left celtic would he miss it if he had to leave. he said that he
    would prefer to be playing football every week somewhere. However he
    said ideally he would be playing fro celtic and playing champs league
    every week,

    Hard to say, he played well in the Champions League against AC Milan 2 season ago, but he's spent the majority of the games since then on the bench.

    Based on the little I've seen he's got the potential to go all the way at centre-half, but he is pretty limited as a left-full.

    Any team having trouble at the back end should give him a look.

    there's definitely a number of centre halfs in the EPL currently that aren't as good as him. Hes a lot better than Paul McShane at CB anyway, but he never gets a chance to play there for Celtic mores the pity.
    Havin a weekend away is quite frankly,lettin ur team mates down!
