Tranmere Rovers suspend manager Moore

League One Tranmere Rovers have announced the suspension of manager Ronnie Moore.

League One Tranmere Rovers have announced the suspension of manager Ronnie Moore.

On Friday it emerged that the game's governing body wanted to speak to the 61-year-old Rovers boss over claims he broke rules by betting in a competition Tranmere are involved in.

Moore took charge of Tranmere on Saturday in the 2-2 draw at Bristol City, and conducted his press conference on Monday ahead of the game at Crawley on Tuesday night.

However, the Sky Bet League One club issued a statement on Monday evening which said they were suspending Moore until the conclusion of the FA's probe.

A statement from Tranmere on the club's official website read: "Tranmere Rovers have today announced that with immediate effect manager Ronnie Moore has been suspended until the conclusion of a Football Association investigation into a potential breach of betting rules.

"Assistant manager John McMahon has been placed in temporary charge of first-team affairs.

"The club will be making no further comment until the outcome of the investigation."
