Darren O'Dea Clears The Air After Criticism Over Challenge That Injured Tom Rogic

Aussie midfielder Tom Rogic, or 'Tam Rogic' to the Glasgow Celtic faithful, has been in outstanding form for Brendan Rodgers so far this season after establishing himself as one of the clubs most important players in recent years.

That's why Celtic supporters were so upset to see Rogic leave the pitch due to injury right as the second half of Saturday's with Dundee. Rodgers' men would go on to win 2-1, stretching their lead at the top of the table to an extremely comfortable 11 points with two games in hand, but seeing Rogic leave the stadium with a big gray boot on his leg will undoubtedly have put a dampener on things.

The player who caused that injury was Ireland international and former Celtic defender Darren O'Dea.


"Assault" certainly appears to be a big overreaction, but it is quite clear that Celtic fans were not impressed by a player they once supported causing harm to one of their current stars.

The reaction prompted O'Dea to publish a tweet of his own expressing his regret as he personally knows Rogic and did not intend to cause any harm.

O'Dea has been an ever-present for Paul Hartley's Dundee this season, playing in 17 of 18 league games for the side that now sit one place above the relegation zone on goal difference.
