Tranmere Rovers have sacked manager Ronnie Moore after he admitted to breaching FA rules on betting.

A statement on the club's website said they have "terminated the employment of Ronnie Moore for being in breach of his contract."

The 61-year-old had been suspended from duty since February when the FA began investigations.

Tranmere's Football Operations Director and club secretary Mick Horton said: “Tranmere Rovers will not tolerate any action that damages the integrity of this football club.

“Any staff members found to be guilty of misconduct will face severe action.”

Moore has asked for a personal hearing in front of the FA and faces possible punishment from the game's governing body.

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.
