Ronnie Moore: Accepted FA charge of misconduct

Tranmere have confirmed they will review manager Ronnie Moore's position at the club after he admitted a Football Association charge of misconduct.

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 and the 61-year-old was last week charged over "multiple breaches" of betting rules.

Now, having admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing, the former Rotherham boss faces an anxious wait to see what the future holds for him at Prenton Park.

A statement on Rovers' official website 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."

Assistant manager John McMahon has been in temporary charge during Moore's suspension as Rovers battle against relegation.

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."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
