‘He talked nonsense’ – Another Dee star puts the boot into Sportscene


Dundee star Darren O’Dea has joined his manager in putting the boot into Sportscene.

Dee boss Paul Hartley was fuming at the assessment of his side’s 1-0 defeat against Aberdeen last week on the BBC’s flagship highlights programme.

Former Scotland international Pat Nevin, who was critical of Dundee’s defending during the clash, came in for particular flak from Hartley.

The irate gaffer blasted: “Pat Nevin doesn’t know what he is talking about and it’s the same every week. It just sums that programme up, it’s the worst I’ve ever seen. Does it have any credibility? No, it’s got none.”

And O’Dea, who was part of the back-line which came in for criticism on the show, waded into the debate by insisting Nevin and fellow pundit Stephen Thompson, got “very little correct”.

The Ireland internationalist Tweeted: “Media say you don’t need to have played football to understand it, well just because you have played doesn’t mean you understand it either.”

Responding to BBC pundit Tom English, he added: “He [Nevin] talked nonsense. Him and Thompson contradicted each other aswell (sic). Contradicted was the right word. The analysis of the game was really poor. Very little was correct. That’s all.”
