Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes insists Scott Wright’s commitment to the Dons in their goals draw against St Johnstone.

Attacker

Scott Wright

started in the 0-0 draw at

St Johnstone

just days after agreeing a pre-contract deal with

Rangers

.

“I understand all that and the club have got to try and get the best offer for any of our players at any given time,”

McInnes said

.

“It’s a fine balancing act when a player goes and signs a pre-contract elsewhere, and the first thing you look for is making sure he is still focused and that commitment.

“That was a fully-committed performance, nobody can say anything other than that. He was full of running, he was bright, he worked back.

“I have the luxury of getting to see my players Monday to Friday. Nobody plays if they are not fully committed and that will continue to be the case.

“And while he’s our player, why should we weaken ourselves? It’s a struggle to get anybody in now anyway in the last few days of the window.

“So why should Aberdeen suffer if we don’t get an offer for any of the players that suits the club? And the club will decide that.”

Aberdeen

had the upper hands and dominated possession and created a few chances, but they failed to score.

“It was a good performance,”

said McInnes, who lost substitute Curtis Main to a thigh strain in the warm-up and defender Tommie Hoban to a head wound in the early stages

.

“It wasn’t the result we came here for but I thought the players did so much right in the game.”
