Press Association Sport understands 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 on Friday 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, which deals with betting matters.

Moore became manager of Tranmere for a second time in 2012 following spells at Oldham, Southport and Rotherham.

The Merseyside club are two places above the Sky Bet League 1 relegation zone with 16 matches of the season left.
