McInnes understands Celtic unhappiness
After police recommendation Celtic's encounter with Hearts has been changed from an evening start at Hampden Park on Sunday, October 28 to a lunchtime kick-off at Murrayfield earlier on the same day.
In a club statement, Celtic criticised the SPFL and said that not conducting a draw to decide which tie moved to Edinburgh was "irrational and discriminatory."
"I can kind of understand that to be honest," McInnes told 'Sky Sports'.
"I don't know how they come to the conclusions. We were all struggling to know why they came to the conclusion last week. We just got told where our game would be and that's all my concern is.
"I would be happy playing in Glasgow or Edinburgh or wherever. Our concern is from a fans' point of view and getting as many supporters there as we can.
"These things are always difficult to please everyone but I can maybe understand if they're not happy."
McInnes believes SPFL officials may have underestimated the power of the supporters before announcing their original Hampden double-header plan.
"I think they probably underestimated public opinion and underestimated the need to look after the supporters, which for me is never healthy," he said.
"You have got to have a healthy regard for the supporters, they are the lifeblood of the game.
"I understand it's difficult for the people who make these decisions to come up with the answers - even now it's not satisfying everyone. But I think supporters have been more catered for with this decision."
