Aberdeen boss is happy about the Scottish Cup resumption.

The Scottish Cup was put on hold due to coronavirus restrictions in Scotland.

However, it has been confirmed that the competition is going to resume from May 22.

Aberdeen

boss

Derek McInnes

believes this is a good news for the game.

He said:

“It’s good news.

“I think a couple of weeks ago we were all maybe expecting that there might be some sort of delay running on to next season, something similar to last year.

“So I think it is great and obviously the lower league teams are pivotal to that, getting back playing and that gives us the green light to try to carry on through and get the tournament finished which I think everybody would want.

“Obviously crowds have an impact on cup football in particular but I think the bigger picture is getting the tournament finished which is great for everybody and gives everybody something to focus on.

Aberdeen are currently fourth in the Scottish Premiership table with 48 points.

“We feel there is a race on (for third) and we have to play our part in that and start winning games,”

McInnes continued.

“Between now and the end of the season, there is going to be lot of important games.

“We have a rough idea what we need to do to give ourselves a chance and we will work towards that.”
