FORMER Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore is being investigated by the Football Association over an alleged breach of betting rules, it has emerged.

It is understood the FA intends to question Moore, who now manages Tranmere, over claims he broke rules that prevent him from betting on any competition his current side are involved in.

According to reports, no charges have been brought against the 61-year-old and he has not been suspended.

Moore did not answer calls on yesterday while Tranmere released a brief statement which read: “Tranmere Rovers Football Club are aware of media reports regarding Ronnie Moore. As this is an ongoing matter the club will make no further comment at this time.”

The FA would neither confirm nor deny that Moore was the subject of an investigation by its integrity unit, which deals with betting matters. Moore became manager of Tranmere for a second time in 2012 following spells at Oldham, Southport and Rotherham.

It comes as the Rugby Football League announced that two Batley players have been given bans after being found guilty of breaching the game’s rules on betting.

Winger Johnny Campbell has been suspended for 12 months by an RFL operational rules tribunal while Ayden Faal has been suspended for six months.
