Eccentric old theologian (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

odd

Here is my best explanation:

'eccentric' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'old theologian' is the subsidiary indication.

'old' becomes 'o'.

'theologian' becomes 'dd'.

'o'+'dd'='odd'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for odd that I've seen before include "Strange, bizarre", "Strange, peculiar", "Uneven", "Peculiar sort of number?", "Peculiar in uneven way", "Freakish", "Number not divisible by two", "Curious", "Unusual, strange" and "Bizarre - occasional".)
