Ex-Manchester United star dies aged 36

Former A League Player Liam Miller Dies Aged 36

President Michael D Higgins has led tributes to former Republic of Ireland worldwide Liam Miller, who has died aged 36.

He made his Republic debut in 2004 against the Czech Republic and earned 21 caps over the next five years, scoring one global goal.

He played 21 times for the Republic of Ireland, scoring once against Sweden. "So very sad. Thoughts and prayers with his friends and family", club captain Michael Carrick said.

He also played for Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City in Australia and his hometown team Cork City before finishing his career with American part-timers Wilmington Hammerheads. I thought the club paid a great tribute to him today. He leaves behind his wife Clare and three children. "Thoughts and prayers with his loved ones".

Stiliyan Petrov, who played with Miller at Celtic, said he was "deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my friend and old team-mate Liam Miller".

Following his passing, many throughout the world of football paid tribute to the former midfielder.

Chris Sutton, who also played with Miller at Celtic, tweeted: "Terribly sad news about Liam Miller".

As the final minute came to an end in a crucial match against promotion rivals Derby at the Stadium of Light 11 years ago this month, the diminutive Liam Miller rose highest to head a dramatic victor. Taken far too soon. Liam was at United when I first signed.

Former Celtic star John Hartson, who himself battled cancer, tweeted his condolences, adding, "Rest in peace young man". "We were pressing strongly and trying to find the breakthrough when Liam scored a magical goal that gave us momentum to win the game", O'Neill said.

"I hope they (his family) can take even the smallest bit of comfort with the outpour of messages and people wanting to say nice things about him".

"The news, we heard about it just recently, we didn't know how bad it was".
