Ronnie Moore Replaces Les Parry At Tranmere Roversby Jack Kitson / 05 March 2012, 16:05Tweet
Ronnie Moore has returned to former club Tranmere Rovers until the end of the season following the departure of Les Parry. Parry was sent packing after Tranmere’s winless run was extended to 11 matches on Saturday when they were defeated by fellow strugglers Chesterfield. The club have been on a shocking run of form, which has seen them drop down to 19th in League One, just one point above the bottom four.
Moore was briefly caretaker manager of Rovers back in 1987 before returning to the club in 2006 for three years, guiding them to 9th, 11th and 8th place finishes in League One. The 59-year-old went onto manage Rotherham for 16 months but has been out of work since leaving the League Two side in March last year.
Moore will now have 13 matches to save Rovers from the dreaded drop down to League Two. He certainly has his work cut out as they are currently one point above the relegation zone with just the one win since late October. Moore will be thrust straight into the action with his first match in charge at home to Notts County on Tuesday. Rovers are yet to win at Prenton Park in 2012 but Moore will ensure they head out all fired up against their promotion pushing opponents. Paddy Power have both clubs available at 8/5 for the win, while a draw is priced at 9/4.
