Peter Grant is hopeful of finally opening contract discussions with his Alloa players ahead of Scottish football's return. 

The Wasps boss has already made clear his determination to try to entice every singe member of his Championship squad to sign on for another season in Clacks.

The game's lockdown has understandably complicated matters for teams across the country and Alloa - who, like every season, will have no signed players on their books by the end of May - are no different.

Grant told Advertiser Sport: "I want to offer the boys contracts but I have to then put on my footballer's hat as well.

"If I offer a contract now, I know players are going to ask when it starts and how long it will last. If we resume play in August, is it a contract until next August?

"There are all these different scenarios and the players are well aware of it but they have been very, very understanding.

"I have spoken to them a number of times to keep them abreast of what is happening and where we are." 

He added: "They are an intelligent group of players and they are comfortable with the current situation.

"But, I would like to get something out to them in the next few weeks and to give them a rough idea of what we are looking at."

There's still no firm date for when Scottish football will resume, although SPFL chiefs finally called time on the Premiership on Monday. 

This crowned Grant's former team Celtic champions for a ninth season in a row while Alloa can look forward to facing-off against Edinburgh giants Hearts once again after they were relegated. 

The Wasps played the Jam Tarts four times in the 2014/15 season, losing on every occasion.

However, Grant added: "There's another scenario people are tending to forget a wee bit. 

"If we sign new contracts and all of a sudden the new season kicks off, God forbid someone takes unwell and we close it down again."
