Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has backed up Neil Lennon's claims that some Premiership clubs have fallen short of their Covid-19 protocol responsibilities.

The Dons manager says he has been in touch this season with 'delegates' at away stadiums this term to highlight issues with social distancing measures and further protocols.

It comes after Celtic manager Lennon claimed earlier this week that Hamilton and St Johnstone were among clubs whose arrangements on matchday could improve.

The Joint Response Group have asked Premiership and Championship clubs to conduct a review of their procedures following Lennon's complaints that Celtic are being held to a higher standard. And they also touched base with clubs in a recent SPFL general meeting to discuss the same issues.

But now McInnes has revealed he too has been concerned with some club's handling of protocols. "We know it is a challenge for clubs to try to provide the best they can and obviously the space is the biggest issue and there are clubs that do it better than others," the Aberdeen manager said. "I have expressed my concerns, not publicly and I am not going to criticise any club here.

"But I have made my concerns known to people at my own club and delegates at a couple of away grounds that we have been to, where it is inadequate, where, if we had a positive test, then we would be in real danger of wiping out the majority of the team and squad.

"It might be different now from when we visited them but there was a couple of grounds we visited where the concern was clear from the outset and you are a bit nervous about that next test.

"The majority of the clubs we have visited have been spot on and done brilliant work but there is one or two who could do it better and should be made to it better.

"It isn’t about telling tales and sticking clubs in it, this isn’t what this is about.

"We learn from other clubs when we visit and the learn from us and it is just about trying to provide the safest environment to keep the whole thing moving.

"Nobody can be perfect but all we can do is have a standard of what is acceptable in terms of the space and it should be a prerequisite."
