Am i missing something big here?
Why would our game not go ahead?
Confirmed in an aberdeen statement. They have one player positive and the other 2 players in the u21 squad are self isolating
They have their entire midfield out tomorrow, they will be left with Ojo and some youngsters
Only two through covid. The rest are injuries or mccrorie ineligibleJust people being panic merchants mate.
To answer your question, it would require a large number of either squad to be out as per some of the postponements earlier in the season. Aberdeen are seemingly missing a handful but not enough for a postponement.
In line with that, BBC site report says:The local press have named them as McLennan, Ferguson and McCrorie
Yeah, no doubt travelled up the road together.In line with that, BBC site report says:
... Aberdeen have confirmed they will be without three squad members in total with two further players identified as close contacts.
So that sounds like it’s probably Ferguson McCrorie and McLennan.
I find it bizarre to be honest.
We are told to wear masks going into shops due to potentially catching it yet you can play football when you are breathing heavily/maybe even coughing/sweating/clearing nose etc when training. Teams are training as normal also so 2m rule doesn’t apply.
Plus going by Motherwell’s tweet, they only found out at 9:30pm last night. Celtic would have been in hotel by then, including Turnbull.
When was Ross McCrorie confirmed?So, 2 x McCrorie’s and Turnbull are the positives. The eight isolating are Welsh (Celtic), Campbell and McGuire (Motherwell), Ferguson and MacLennan (Aberdeen) - plus 3 others. Who are the missing names I wonder?
Assuming Robbie McCrorie was the first identified.
Even hanging about the training ground/canteen is surely a risk if he’s positive? Remember SFA only alerted clubs to this around 9:30pm last night going by what Motherwell have said.Outdoor training 'should' be fine, but aye if they were in hotels etc then it could be an issue.
