Former Celtic player Liam Miller reveals cancer battle

Friends rally around Liam Miller as footballer faces cancer battle

Many of Liam Miller's former global teammates took to Twitter to show support for the Cork man as it was revealed that he is battling cancer.

Ex-England striker Chris Sutton said: "All thoughts and prayers go out to my old teammate Liam Miller tonight".

"The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United go out to Liam Miller and is loved ones at this hard time" a tweet from United read. "A very young man, 36 years of age, it puts things in perspective anyway".

Miller made his professional debut for Celtic in 2000 after coming through the youth ranks at Parkhead and helped them win the Scottish Premier League title in 2004.


Miller then went on to play for Leeds United, Sunderland, Q.P.R., Hibernians, Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City.

Miller began his career with Celtic before Sir Alex Ferguson brought the Republic of Ireland global to Manchester United in 2004.

But the football world this morning sent messages of support to the Irishman, who played 36 times for Leeds United scoring once between 2005 and 2006.

Many of his former clubs and colleagues have publicly expressed their support for Miller through social media.


He tweeted: "Awful news about Liam Miller keep fingers crossed that he somehow pulls through".

He also has 21 senior global caps, and one goal, for the Republic of Ireland.

Ex-Celtic defender Darren O'Dea, now with Dundee, said: 'All my thoughts and love with Liam Miller and his family'.
