Tranmere's Moore quizzed over betting allegations

Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore is being investigated by the Football Association over an alleged breach of betting rules, it has emerged.

It is understood the FA intends to question Moore over claims he broke rules that prevent him from betting on any competition Tranmere are involved in.

It is understood that no FA charges have been brought against the 61-year-old and he has not been suspended.

Moore did not answer calls yesterday, while Tranmere released a brief statement which read: "Tranmere Rovers Football Club are aware of media reports regarding Ronnie Moore. As this is an ongoing matter the club will make no further comment at this time."

The FA would neither confirm nor deny that Moore was the subject of an investigation by its integrity unit.
