13 November 2017

Some incredibly sad news began to emerge last night that former Irish worldwide Liam Miller was gravely ill, fighting cancer.

A number of players have tweeted their support for former football star Liam Miller after it emerged the Irishman is undergoing cancer treatment in the United States.

Believed to be back home in Cork receiving treatment, former Hibs player Tam McManus tweeted that Miller: "was in the U.S. for treatment this month and flies back tomorrow to start chemo here".

"I gave him his debut at Celtic", O'Neill said at today's press conference.

"I heard recently but I didn't know how bad it was".

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

The Welshman said: "My thoughts are with Liam miller and his family this morning". It is understood he had been treated there in recent weeks before making the decision to return home.

The 36-year-old began his career at Parkhead, scoring two goals in 26 appearances during the Martin O'Neill era before moving to Manchester United.

Former Celtic player Chris Sutton also wished him a speedy recovery on twitter.

John Hartson, who himself was diagnosed with testicular cancer, also wished Liam the best with his treatment. "Will say a prayer for him tonight".

Ian Harte added: 'Very sad news about one of my old teammates Liam Miller, thinking of him and his family at this very hard time'.

While Stoke playmaker Charlie Adam added: "Thoughts are with Liam Miller and his family at this tough time.#staystrong".
