Aberdeen’s Scottish Premiership match away to St Johnstone has been postponed after two of their players tested positive for Covid-19.

A further six Aberdeen players are currently self-isolating after a team trip to the city’s Soul Bar last Saturday. 

Aberdeen cancelled training on Thursday after one player tested positive, with it later being established that a second player had caught coronavirus. They are both asymptomatic.

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon put the city of Aberdeen back into lockdown on Wednesday after the amount of coronavirus cases doubled in 24 hours. 

Sturgeon said more than 20 pubs and restaurants had been linked to a cluster which had formed in Aberdeen.

A total of 79 cases have now been diagnosed in the city, with bars and restaurants shut down for a week at 5pm on Thursday. 

Joe Fitzpatrick, Scotland’s minster for public health and sport, called a meeting with the Scottish FA and Scottish Professional Football League on Friday to discuss the situation.

The Scottish Government expressed their disappointment with those who put the return of professional football in the country at risk.

Aberdeen were in action on the opening weekend of the new season as they lost 1-0 at home to Rangers.

Players in Scotland are to stay in close contact with each other on the condition they remain in their bubble.
