Ex-Celtic and Republic of Ireland player Liam Miller dies, aged 36

Liam Miller

Former Republic of Ireland, Celtic and Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller has passed away at the age of 36.

He began his professional career at Celtic in 2000 and went on to join United in 2004 where he made nine appearances before departing for Sunderland in 2006.

Some of Liam's former teammates were among the others who paid tribute to the midfielder.

A statement from Cork Schoolboy League said their thoughts and prayers were with Liam's family.

Miller, who also counts Manchester United, Leeds and Sunderland among his former sides, had been suffering from cancer.

He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer previous year and returned to Cork in November for treatment at Marymount.

Fultz may miss the season
At some point, Fultz began feeling shoulder soreness and completely altered his free throw motion to help alleviate the issue. The 76ers are still not sure if changing his shot caused the injury, or if the injury caused the change in his shot.

Both played with the 36-year-old during his loan spell at Old Trafford in the 2005/06 season and took to social media to share their grief after Miller died from cancer on Friday.

Off the Ball presenter and former Ireland teammate Kevin Kilbane said: "Sad hearing the bad news that Liam Miller has passed away this evening, taken far so soon by a terrible disease".

The club also added a video of Miller scoring the victor in a dramatic 4-3 comeback victory over Southampton in 2005.

"To lose your life that young and leave a young family behind is so sad".

"And, of course, when the news filtered through last night it was terribly sad, and especially when you think of his wife and three children".

The Black Cats wrote: "We are saddened to hear this evening that former #SAFC midfielder Liam Miller has passed away. We were pressing strongly and trying to find the breakthrough when Liam scored a magical goal that gave us momentum to win the game", said O'Neill.

Former Ireland captain Robbie Keane said: "Woke up to the devastating news of my former team mate Liam Miller taken way too soon".
