Former A League Player Liam Miller Dies Aged 36

The football world is in mourning after Irishman Liam Miller has tragically passed away at the age of just 36.

The former Republic of Ireland global also played for Manchester United, Leeds United, Celtic and Sunderland.

Rio Ferdinand said the death of his former team-mate was "tragic" while current Manchester United captain Michael Carrick remembered Miller being at the club when he first joined in 2006.

Former club Hibernian said that that their "thoughts are with his family and friends".

At the end of his career, Miller headed to Australia's A League, where he featured for Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City.

Miller, who retired only seven months ago, died after a brief fight with pancreatic cancer.




"The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the CSL are with Liam's family tonight". He leaves behind his wife Clare and three children.

"A gifted midfielder, Liam helped the Ireland Under-16s win the UEFA European Championships in Scotland and went on to forge a fine senior career that saw him pull on the green jersey for Ireland at senior level - and we will all remember his superb goal against Sweden. We send our deepest condolences to Liam's family at this hard time".

He added that those who love and support Irish sport "will keenly feel his loss".

Miller began his career at Celtic and before beating Partick 3-2 in the Scottish Cup, the Hoops wore black armbands prior to a minute's silence which was impeccably observed. "Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time".

Many of Miller's former clubs and team-mates have expressed their sadness, including former Celtic team-mate Stiliyan Petrov. "Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time". We all heard the news this morning. "So sad. Thoughts with his family".

Ex-international teammate Kevin Kilbane said, "Sad hearing the bad news Liam has passed away, taken far too soon by a terrible disease". Irish rugby legend Brian O'Driscoll tweeted: "Awful to wake up to the sad news of Liam Miller's passing. A very young man, 36 years of age, it puts things in perspective anyway".
