Ex-Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller painfully died of cancer at the age of 36, another of his old clubs, Celtic, declared.
Miller, who won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland over a 16-year career, got through at Celtic before he moved to Old Trafford in 2004. It was reported in November that Miller was suffering from cancer, his former clubs helping around him and his family.
Miller’s passing on Friday brought tributes from some of his previous clubs – including Leeds United, Hibernian and Sunderland.
The Championship club wrote :
“Everyone at Leeds United are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former Leeds midfielder Liam Miller,” “Our thoughts are with his family and friends.”
