Darren O’Dea Shows Admirable Honesty After Receiving SFA Notice

Darren O’Dea Shows Admirable Honesty After Receiving SFA Notice

Darren O’Dea showed some admirable honesty after receiving a Notice of Complaint from the SFA.

Dundee this evening confirmed that the SFA had served O’Dea with the notice following his side’s 0-0 draw with Livingston on Boxing Day.

The defender caused controversy after his reaction to a push from Livi’s Jack Hamilton earned the opposing player a red card.

In case you haven’t seen it, here it is:

Dundee confirmed O’Dea will serve an immediate two-game suspension for the incident.

But instead of fighting the notice, Dundee have accepted it and O’Dea has taken to Twitter to apologise to Livi and Hamilton:

That’s a classy tweet – and refreshing to see when usually players wouldn’t comment or their clubs would fight the decision.

O’Dea is now set to miss Dundee games against Hearts and Motherwell later this month before potentially returning to the team against Hamilton at the start of February.

By then, Dundee – who are currently bottom of the Premiership – could really be embroiled in a relegation dogfight.
