Former Hibs' midfielder Liam Miller dies from cancer aged 36

Miller - whose former clubs included Celtic, Manchester United and Hibernian - was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer previous year and had been undergoing treatment in the United States and Ireland.

Tributes are flowing in for the player who represented 12 clubs, also including Celtic and Sunderland, over a 16-year professional football career.

He ended his career in the United States in 2016, having also played for three clubs in Australia and his hometown club Cork City before retiring.

He also won 21 Ireland caps, scoring one goal, a long-range effort against Sweden in what was Steve Staunton's first game as manager.

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.

Hibernian's official Twitter account were among the first to react to the Irishman's passing as the Edinburgh-based club paid tribute to their former player.




"I was aware of him as a young player with talent here".

"I'm deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my friend and old team mate Liam Miler", said former Celtic midfielder Stiliyan Petrov, who himself has battled leukemia.

A brief spell at Loftus Road was followed by stints at Hibernian, Australian clubs Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City, home-town club Cork City and, most recently, Wilmington.

And prior to Ireland's Six Nations game with Italy at Croke Park, the IRFU sent their condolences to the Miller family, saying: "Waking up to the very sad news about Liam Miller".

Tributes have poured in following the death of footballer Liam Miller, led by former clubs and teammates.

"Rest In Peace", former United midfielder David Beckham posted on Instagram. He was a quiet, unassuming young man and was popular with everyone at Carrington.
