  • Miller who also played for Leeds attracted tributes from former team-mates on social media

Former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder Liam Miller is reportedly battling cancer.

The former Manchester United, Leeds and Celtic midfielder has been in America for treatment on as yet unconfirmed condition, which some reports suggest is pancreatic cancer.

His career has since taken him to Sunderland, QPR and Hibernian, and as far as Australia, the Republic of Ireland and the United States, where he now plays for Wilmington Hammerheads.

"I gave him his debut as a kid at Celtic, he played wonderfully well".

"The news, we heard about it just recently, we didn't know how bad it was".

Ex-England striker Chris Sutton said: "All thoughts and prayers go out to my old teammate Liam Miller tonight". "A very young man, 36 years of age, it puts things in perspective anyway".
