Cormack informed BBC Radio Scotland’s Sportsound program: “I discovered a long period of time ago in business that the worst time to make any long-lasting decision on anything is during a crisis.

” We have actually constantly been helpful of taking a look at the Partick Thistle situation especially and attempting to see fairness.

” We are for a broadened Premiership of 14 teams for one season or 2 seasons if it takes that to mix it back through.

” I’m ensured that work begins on Monday.

” There’s a UEFA conference next week and we have actually got to take a look at choices. Among the issues we have got at Aberdeen is this: even if it’s a remote possibility of playing out the Premiership, what if it’s chosen by the Federal government that we can’t fly back and forth to Europe? Which there’s no option however to take a look at closed doors games that are telecasted.
