Former Scotland assistant manager Peter Grant has been confirmed as Alloa Athletic's new team boss.

He replaces Jim Goodwin, who left the Scottish Championship club to take over at top-flight St Mirren.

Grant, 53, has been out of the game since leaving his job with the national team in April, when Alex McLeish was sacked.

He spent the majority of his playing career with Celtic and has his sole stint as a manager with Norwich City.

Grant has previously been on the coaching staff at Bournemouth, West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion, Celtic, Birmingham City and Fulham.
