Ronnie Moore's position at Tranmere is under review after he admitted an FA charge of misconduct in relation to betting.

The League 1 club suspended Moore on February 17 after an investigation was launched by the FA's Football Integrity Unit, and the 61-year-old was last week charged over "multiple breaches" of betting rules.
A statement on the FA's official website read: "Ronnie Moore has admitted an FA charge regarding multiple breaches of Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting.
"The Tranmere Rovers manager has requested a personal hearing, the date of which will be set in due course."
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 Prenton Park during Moore's suspension, with Tranmere currently 19th in the table.
But Moore's decision to accept the charge has prompted Rovers to conduct a swift review of the situation.
A brief statement released on the club's official website read: "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.
"We will review Mr Moore's position over the next 24 hours."
