  • Manchester United and Celtic offer support to former player Liam Miller

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".

Miller appeared 21 times for the Republic of Ireland between 2004 and 2009 while he also played with QPR as well as Leeds United on loan.

We wish him nothing but the best in his fight ahead, and hope for a speedy recovery.

"Awful news about Liam Miller keep the fingers crossed that he somehow pulls through", said former Hibernian forward McManus on Twitter.

"That's from the whole team and everyone". "Hope he can get through this hard time of his life", tweeted the Welshman.

"Thoughts and prayers are with my old team Mate and friend Liam Miller as he and his lovely family fight through this battle!"
