Former Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller has died aged 36

Former Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller has passed away following a battle with cancer.

The Corkman, 36, flew home from the USA late last year after being diagnosed, where he had been playing with Wilmington Hammerheads in the American third-tier United Soccer League.

Tributes have flooded in on Twitter tonight:

Miller became a real prospect under Martin O’Neill at Celtic before joining United as a 23-year-old in 2004. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, the Ireland international made 22 appearances in his two years at the club. He then joined Sunderland.

We send our best wishes to Liam Miller’s family and friends. May he rest in piece.

Stumbled across this interview with Miller from 2015, with Liam Mackey of the Irish Examiner.
