The EFL have constantly spoken of their desire to make sure the 2019/20 campaign is concluded on the pitch.

Footballing authorities are waiting to hear about how lockdown measures will be eased before any firm plans can be implemented.

Ross McCrorie is certainly interested to learn when the sport might resume, as his loan deal from Rangers expires at the end of the season.

And the Scotland under-21 skipper would love to get the chance to finish the job he started with Pompey.

He said: “I’m not sure about when contracts might finish because of the crisis – I haven’t got a clue about that side of things.

“But if we can get playing again, then it would be good to extend my deal to whenever the season would end.

"I can’t wait to be back playing again and hopefully we’ve got nine more league games to look forward to."

“I’ve enjoyed my time here. There was one big injury and then perhaps I came back a bit too soon from that.

“But I love the city and all the lads. The fans and coaching staff all welcomed me and I feel I’ve given a good account of myself.

“I can’t wait to be back playing again and hopefully we’ve got nine more league games to look forward to.

“We were in a positive position in the table when the season was suspended and everyone wants to get the job done by winning promotion.”

The Leasing.com Trophy final also needs to be rearranged, with Pompey looking to defend the silverware against Salford.

McCrorie said: “Getting to Wembley was a great achievement and it would have been a phenomenal day.

“More than 50,000 of our supporters had bought tickets, so hopefully we still get that amazing experience.”
