Moore rejoined Rovers in early March and led Rovers to a six-game unbeaten run and six wins in his first 10 games in charge, helping the club into mid-table in League One.

Moore said: "When I came back to Tranmere in March I said that I wanted to get the club to the 50-point mark before I discussed a contract.

"I'm delighted we have been able to do it with a few games to spare and even more delighted to have signed my contract. Now I want us to finish the season on a high and get as many points as possible in our final three matches.

"Everybody knows how big a part Tranmere Rovers has been in my life as a player, coach, caretaker manager, assistant manager and manager and I'm looking forward to the next 12 months.

"I want Tranmere to be a top-half team next season and I'll be looking to improve the squad over the summer. A big part of that comes down to how big our budget is and that comes down to season-ticket sales, so the more supporters we can get buying season tickets the better it should be for everyone."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
