Moore replaced outgoing boss Les Parry in March to take the reins for a third time at Prenton Park with Rovers in danger of relegation from League One.

However, a run of six wins and three draws in 11 games under Moore shepherded the Merseyside outfit to safety and the 59-year-old has agreed to remain in charge next season.

Johnson said: "I'm delighted Ronnie will be staying as our manager.

"He has done a wonderful job in securing the club's League One status for next season and has led us to one of the best records in the division over the last couple of months.

"I'm sure he will help the club progress further in 2012/13. He has a great rapport with our fans and I'd like to thank them for their fantastic support since his return."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
