Moore admits FA charge

Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore has admitted a Football Association charge of misconduct and requested a personal hearing.

Moore was suspended by the 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 for "multiple breaches" of betting rules.

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."

Current regulations prohibit players, managers and club officials from betting on competitions in which their teams are involved.

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