O'Dea braced for celtic exit

DARREN O'DEA expects that yesterday's Dublin Super Cup win over the Airtricity League XI will prove to be his last appearance in a Celtic shirt.

The Irish international is in search of regular football. "I think I know and the manager knows it's time to move on," said O'Dea.

"I don't think I've ever played more than four games in a row at centre-half, but I certainly won't be leaving with a bad word to say about anyone.

"I have proven I can play at a higher level. It's just I've never been given the chance to prove it at that level every week for 10 or 20 games," added the Dubliner, who expects to move to a Championship club.
