Scott Brown To Donate Part Of Testimonial Income To Liam Miller’s Family

Celtic captain Scott Brown is to donate a portion of the proceeds of his upcoming testimonial to the late Liam Miller’s family.

It was confirmed on Monday that the former Scottish international will be awarded a testimonial by his club to mark a decade of service tot he the reigning Scottish champions, and Ireland, managed by former Celtic boss Martin O’Neill, have been chosen as the opposition for the May fixture at Parkhead.

Brown is free to give the income generated from the match to causes of his choosing – and has opted to give some of said income to the family of Milller.

The Corkman, who played for both Celtic and Ireland over the course of his career, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer earlier this year, sending the football world into mourning at the loss of a great person and player, and robbed his family of a great husband, father, brother and son.

Though Brown and Miller never played together for Celtic – the latter departed for Man United in 2004, while the former didn’t join until three years later – the club and support base that bonds them is a strong one, and the Celtic fans’ response to Miller’s passing showed the high level of affection that they held for their former midfielder.
