Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has blamed a lack of goals for his side’s failure to retain the Premier League title.
In their relegation-group clash, Hibs had the better of the chances - but McInnes' men were able to earn a point - although neither are in danger of the drop.
Hibs' Scottish Cup hero Leigh Griffiths - who had fired his side into the Cup final over Falkirk last week - missed clear-cut opportunities to put away the visitors.
His fellow attacker, Irishman Eoin Doyle, also came close when he hit the woodwork early in the second half, but Aberdeen managed to keep their sheet clean.
Aberdeen stay one point above Hibernian - 42 points to 41 - but both are well clear of bottom side Dundee.
The cellar-dwellers are likely to be relegated at their next outing, as they are 10 points and significant goal difference from safety - with four matches to play.
