Former Rotherham United manager Ronnie Moore has admitted breaking Football Association betting rules, it was announced last night.

The admission was confirmed in a statement by Mr Moore’s current employer, Tranmere Rovers.

Tranmere have confirmed they will review Mr Moore’s position at the club after he admitted an Football Association charge of misconduct and requested a personal hearing.

Moore was suspended by the Sky Bet League One club on February 17 after an investigation was launched by the FA’s Football Integrity Unit.

The 61-year-old was subsequently charged last week chaover “multiple breaches” of betting rules.

A statement on Rovers’ official website last night read: “Tranmere Rovers Football Club has been informed by the FA that Ronnie Moore has admitted an FA charge regarding multiple breaches of Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting and requested a personal hearing.

“We will review Mr Moore’s position over the next 24 hours.”

Current regulations prohibit players, managers and club officials from betting on competitions in which their teams are involved.

A statement on thefa.com read: “Ronnie Moore has admitted an FA charge regarding multiple breaches of Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting.

“The Tranmere Rovers manager has requested a personal hearing, the date of which will be set in due course.”

Moore has had two spells as manager at Rotherham United.
