The Football Community is Rallying Around Liam Miller Today

The football community is rallying around Liam Miller today following the shocking news that the former Celtic and Manchester United midfielder is battling cancer.

Miller, still only 36, broke into Martin O’Neill’s Celtic first-team back in 2003, scoring several high-profile goals including against Lyon and Anderlecht in the Champions League group stages.

He signed for Sir Alex Ferguson and United in July 2004, after the expiry of his Celtic contract, and he went on to play for Leeds United, Sunderland and QPR before coming back to Scotland for a stint at Hibs.

Since the news of his illness broke on social media last night, former team-mates, opponents and fans have been posting messages of support, desperately hoping the ex-Republic of Ireland international can pull through:

Miller had most recently been playing for Wilmington Hammerheads in America’s United Soccer League, following a spell with several high-profile clubs in Australia’s A League.

Get well soon and keep fighting, Liam!
