Aberdeen Matches Off For Next Week

Aberdeen’s and Celtic matches are to be called off this week after their players broke lockdown rules, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said.

Ms Surgeon told her daily briefing that fans “should not be expecting to see Aberdeen or Celtic play in the coming week.”

Celtic defender Boli Bolingoli flew to Spain without the club’s knowledge, failed to quarantine, then played in Sunday’s match against Kilmarnock.

Ms Sturgeon said this was a “flagrant breach” of the guidelines.

The defender said he was “guilty of an error of judgement” and apologised.

Celtic apologised and said his actions were “beyond explanation”. All players and backroom staff have since been tested twice and returned negative results.

Eight Aberdeen players have apologised for visiting a bar at the centre of a Covid-19 outbreak.
