Ronnie Moore, former Rotherham United FC, admitted violating the betting rules of the Football Association.
Moore’s confession was confirmed in a statement of Tranmere Rovers FC, his current team. The club’s officials announced they will assess Moore’s role in the club right after he admitted the charge of the FA and the personal hearing he will undergo. The manager was suspended in February when the investigation began.
Moore was charged last week for “multiple breaches” of the betting rules and made it in to gambling news.
The statement on Rovers’ website, which was posted last night said: “Tranmere Rovers Football Club has been informed by the FA that Ronnie Moore has admitted an FA charge regarding multiple breaches of Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting and requested a personal hearing.”
Furthermore: “We will review Mr Moore’s position over the next 24 hours.”
According to the current UK betting laws and the FA rules, football players, club executives and managers cannot bet on competitions, in which their teams are playing.
The FA statement said: “Ronnie Moore has admitted an FA charge regarding multiple breaches of Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting.”
Additionally: “The Tranmere Rovers manager has requested a personal hearing, the date of which will be set in due course.”
