Tranmere Rovers Manager Ronnie Moore Suspended for Breaching Betting Rules

ronnieEnglish Football League One’s Tranmere Rovers have suspended 61 year club manager Ronnie Moore over suspicions of breaching the English Football Associations rules regarding betting and gaming.

The Football club issues a statement suspending the manager for the foreseeable future, as the FA will investigate the managers betting actions. Assistant manager John McMahon will oversee the management of the Tranmere   Rovers first team in the absence of Moore.

Moore has been accused of placing football bets on the performances of his team. It is not known whether the manager, had backed his team to win or lose matches.  FA rules on betting and wagering remain unclear as to whether football players and managers can bet on performances of their own sides.

Match fixing has come to the fore front of the English football agenda in 2014. December 2013 saw the arrest of six professional footballers by the National Crime Agency (NCA).  Ex Premiership footballers DJ Campbell and  Sam Sodje, had been implicated as for fixing yellow and red cards in English Football Championship matches.

Tranmere Rovers currently lie just two points outside the relegation zone, the club are entering a key phase to ensure survival in the third tier of English football.
