Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack believes that the new Covid-19 restrictions put in place will prove to be a major challenge for Scottish football. The club incurred a £5.19m loss last season with the majority of the season playing behind closed doors. Scotland health secretary Humza Yousaf said that new restrictions are an inevitability after the rise in cases of the new Omicron variant.
“We can only deal with decisions that are made that we can’t control when we’re told about them,” Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack said. “If we’ve got to go back to what we’ve gone through already with no hospitality and fans I think that would be a major challenge for Scottish football. I and the investors would absolutely make sure the club got through it so there’s no real concern there. I think Scottish football gets through it, what shape it gets through it who knows, I don’t want to be alarmist, we’ve got to hope that sense prevails and that the science leads us to make the right decisions.”
“Obviously I’m pleased for Steven but just because you win three games in a row you don’t go off smoking cigars, you’ve got to keep it going,” he added. “In Stephen’s defense, we started the season quite well, five out of six wins. No one can argue that we haven’t had serious defensive injuries to deal with but hopefully, we’re through a lot of that. We’re six points behind Hearts, there’s all to play for third place and a Scottish Cup. No pressure Stephen!”
