Aberdeen captain Joe Lewis has called on the Scottish Government to set up a plan to begin the process of returning fans to Scottish football.

Fans will be able to return to English stadiums from next month. However, in Scotland only clubs in Tier One areas of the country can fans in their stadium.

Lewis wants to see fans back in stadiums soon, and hopes that moves are being made to make such an event happen.

“Plan put in place”

“The football clubs are wanting to get the ball rolling. I know Aberdeen have been one of the more vocal and rightly so, in my opinion. There needs to be some plan put in place now” he said.

“Some sort of plan, so the clubs know where they stand, would be nice. The SPFL have released a statement which the club have fully-backed and hopefully we can get the ball rolling” he concluded.

Fans of every club that is in Scotland who are waiting for fans to return will back Lewis’ comments. They could have some weight as well. It is a Premiership captain who is expressing his thoughts on the situation.

Interesting to see high-profile player’s remarks

That might not cut any ice with the decision makers though. Still, it is interesting to see that a high-profile player is in favour of getting fans back into stadiums.

The players must miss the atmosphere that is generated by a packed stadium. It can’t be the same for them, with the only noise being the shouting of their teammates.

Hopefully there is a plan in place from the authorities, and Scottish football begins the process of getting fans back into grounds soon.
