  1. I would think all associated with Aberdeen fc will have undergone more stringent testing for cov19 throughout the day and those who travel through for the game on Saturday will pose no risk to others. I work in an environment where the virus has taken many lives and know first hand the measures the health board/government take to try an curb this epidemic. I don't believe for one minute this game would go ahead if there is even the slightest risk to others. I get tested every week now (7 times so far and it's brutal) professional footballers are tested twice a week.

  2. Further to tonight’s JRG statement, Aberdeen FC confirms that two first team players, who have tested positive for COVID-19 but are asymptomatic, are self-isolating for ten days. In line with government guidance and procedures from the football authorities, six other players, who were in close proximity with the two positive cases, are also self-isolating for 14 days. The Club has been in open discussions with the football authorities since this came to light. As a result, the Club will be missing eight players for the St Johnstone game, which the JRG has confirmed will now go ahead on Saturday. AFC Chairman, Dave Cormack, said: “After Saturday’s game, with all eyes on Pittodrie, we were once again commended on the stringent processes and measures we had in place. Given the efforts of everyone at the Club and our investment in protecting our most valuable assets, this is a bitter blow. “With two first team players testing positive for COVID-19, plus six others having to isolate for 14 days, it is also a harsh reminder of the severity and speed of spread of this virus. “The Club will be carrying out a full investigation but, as an immediate first step, we have reinforced the Club’s COVID-19 protocols and the governing bodies’ guidance with every player and member of staff and will continue to regularly educate and remind everyone of what is, and what is not, acceptable in the current climate. “We now have to focus on preparing for Saturday’s game
