Aberdeen donate player fines for coronavirus breach to health service

Aberdeen have fined eight players that broke coronavirus protocols leading to three Scottish Premiership matches being postponed with the money to be donated to the local health service.

Two players tested positive and another six were forced to self-isolate for 14 days after attending a restaurant and a bar together following a 1-0 home defeat to Rangers on August 1.

Bruce Anderson, Craig Bryson, Sam Cosgrove, Michael Devlin, Jonny Hayes, Matthew Kennedy, Dylan McGeouch and Scott McKenna had previously issued an unreserved apology for their actions in a joint statement.

“As a result of our investigation, these players have been severely reprimanded and fined heavily. Contractually, the specifics must remain confidential between the club and each player but, rest assured, the financial fines are in line with the severity of the consequences of their actions,” said Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack in a statement.

“The club has chosen to donate these fines to NHS Grampian.”
