Aberdeen have expressed their disappointment after it was confirmed this morning that there would be no Scottish Premiership trial fixtures this weekend.

The Dons welcomed in 300 supporters to Pittodrie as they defeated Kilmarnock on Saturday.

But despite the trial fixture being completed without any major hiccups, the Scottish Government have confirmed that no supporters will take in the action this weekend.

Derek McInnes' side reacted, saying: "Despite Saturday’s successful trial event at Pittodrie, SPFL clubs have been informed that there will not be any trial events at Scottish Premiership matches this weekend. This means that our plans to welcome an increased number of supporters to Pittodrie for the visit of Motherwell on Sunday will now not go ahead.

"We continue to adhere to and comply with Scottish Government guidance and will work with football authorities to be involved in any future test events which may take place in the coming weeks.

"We have received resoundingly positive feedback from both the supporters in attendance and the authorities following the test match at Pittodrie on Saturday and we will continue to work tirelessly behind the scenes to build upon this experience and to help shape any future events.

"As a Club we’d like to take this opportunity to thank the supporters who were with us at Pittodrie last weekend and extend our gratitude for their co-operation and willingness to ensure the matchday was a safe environment for all."
