  • O'Donnell preserves his modesty after sudden emergence

    STEPHEN O’Donnell had his shorts pulled down by an irate Albanian player on Thursday night but otherwise he had absolutely nothing to feel embarrassed about on his competitive debut for his country. The Kilmarnock full-back was hardly the most obvious choice when it came to the right-wing back role in Alex McLeish’s system but he earned pass marks and then some during the 2-0 win which got our Nations League campaign off and running and still got out the other end with his modesty intact. Asked if he felt like he now felt he was here to stay as an international player, it was refreshing to hear the 26-year-old say that he wouldn’t be counting any chickens until he was into double figures for caps. “I was told when I was younger 50 games for your club and you are a first team footballer,” he said, “so maybe if I can get to ten caps then I will definitely belong here.”
