Aberdeen boss, Derek McInnes has remarked that the team's chairman, Dave Cormack's decision to postpone a Q&A session with fans is not his concern as Aberdeen set to play with Celtic on Wednesday.


's five latest Scottish Premiership matches are winless.

"Our focus needs to be 100 percent on supporting Derek and the players as they prepare for the remaining league games, starting with Celtic on Wednesday night,"

Cormack said in support of Mclnnes.

"We're all frustrated by our recent form, whether it be Derek, the players or the 100,000 fans who follow Aberdeen FC around the globe. Yes, there's a vocal group on social media, perfectly entitled to their opinions, but there are hundreds of others who have gone out of their way to send Derek and the club messages of support as we go through this challenging period."

Aberdeen are standing fourth in the table, and McInnes admitts that he's now focused on turning the results around.

"I wasn't involved in the arrangement of that [Q&A session] in the first place, and I wasn't involved in the cancellation,"

he said.

"That's up to the chairman. For us we need to knuckle down on the football side, concentrate on the job in hand.

"We've had two tough spells before. You'd take a result over performance, a lot of the performances we've had, some of the draws, we've been pleased with the work we've done but nothing really to show for it.

"It's not clean sheets tomorrow (Wednesday) or points at this stage of the season, it's wins that get the job done."

"We take full responsibility for the situation we're in,"




"It's our job now to get out of it, hopefully we can finish the season strong and at the end it's a time for me to reflect whether it's been a good campaign or not.

"People told me two months ago it's our best or second-best start in 20 years, in every press conference that this was the best squad we've had.

"We've still got it all to do, and hopefully we can do exactly what we want to do."
