TRANMERE ROVERS HAVE sacked manager Ronnie Moore, a day after he admitted a Football Association charge of repeatedly breaking betting rules.

Moore was suspended by the north-west club on February 17 after the FA launched an investigation and last week the 61-year-old was charged over “multiple breaches” of betting rules.

After admitting the charge and requesting a personal hearing on Tuesday, the former Rotherham boss has now been told he has been relieved of his duties at Prenton Park.

“Tranmere Rovers Football Club have today (Wednesday) terminated the employment of Ronnie Moore for being in breach of his contract,” the club said in a statement.

“Moore has admitted an FA charge regarding multiple breaches of Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting and requested a personal hearing.

Rovers secretary Mick Horton said: “Tranmere Rovers will not tolerate any action that damages the integrity of this Football Club.

“Any staff members found to be guilty of misconduct will face severe action.”
