Derek McInnes has insisted that season 2019/20 must be completed regardless of how long football is suspended for due to Coronavirus.
Deleting a run of home results that saw the Dons have to wait until last weekend to enjoy a home win in the SPFL would be highly convenient but win, lose or draw the last 30 games have been real and meaningful.

Whenever we are able to pick up the game again, whether it is two weeks or two months the season must get finished.
And whether that then impacts on the following season, a shorter season or whatever we can’t just pretend that what’s happened hasn’t happened. We’ve got to fulfil the fixtures.
Before thoughts can turn to next season the make-up of the divisions has to be earned with promotion and relegation the essence of league football.
Hearts still harbour ambitions of beating the drop with Ross County, St Mirren and Hamilton doing all they can to stay away from bottom place.
Every club in the Championship could be playing in a different division. Dundee United are almost champions, three promotion play-off places are available with the remainder trying to avoid automatic relegation or a relegation play-off place.
