The publication of a report revealing if council planners recommend Aberdeen FC's bid for a new £50m stadium complex for approval or refusal has been delayed.

The stadium and training facilities would be at Kingsford, near Westhill.

The recommendation of Aberdeen City Council planners had been due to be published on Tuesday afternoon.

However, it is still being finalised. Councillors will decide on 11 October whether to give the go-ahead.

The club has said the new facility is vital to its future. However objectors have called for the club to look elsewhere.

BBC Radio Scotland has broadcast a 25-minute programme about Aberdeen's stadium bid.
