Tributes have been pouring in for former Ireland international midfielder Liam Miller who died on Friday following a battle with cancer aged just 36

Miller’s former clubs, Manchester United, Celtic, Hibernian, Sunderland, Leeds United, and Cork City have extended condolences to the Cork native’s family in the last few hours, while a host of other clubs from the League of Ireland, the Scottish Football League and throughout the English Football League have also offered their sympathy.

There was also a moment’s silence for Miller at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium ahead of Melbourne City’s A-League clash with Sydney FC today. Miller spent several years playing in Australia, first with Perth Glory, then Brisbane Roar and, finally, with Melbourne City in 2014.

“I send my condolences to his family and friends, and all those who love Irish sport,” concluded Higgins.
