Celtic and Manchester United have offered their support to Liam Miller after reports emerged suggesting that the 36 year old is battling cancer.
Miller is a product of the youth ranks at Parkhead and made his professional debut for Celtic in 2000. He went on to win the Scottish Premiership title with the club in 2004.
He eventually left the Hoops to join Manchester United in 2004 and went on to make 22 appearances in all competitions for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, scoring two goals in the process.
Miller was also part of the Sunderland side led by Roy Keane that won promotion to the Premier League in 2007 and ended up joining QPR two years later.
The former Republic of Ireland international last played for American semi-professional side Wilmington Hammerheads and is said to be currently receiving treatment in the United States.
Celtic wrote on their Twitter account: “The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Celtic Football Club are with Liam Miller and his family at this time.”
