Former Celtic, Man United man Miller battling cancer

Liam Miller is understood to be battling cancer and has visited the US for treatment

A number of players have tweeted their support for former football star Liam Miller after it emerged the Irishman is undergoing cancer treatment in the United States.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of his side's World Cup playoff against Denmark, O'Neill expressed his shock. He played wonderfully well in a Champions League game one evening, he was absolutely outstanding. I think he's got three children as well. "It puts things in perspective".

Fellow Corkman David Meyler added: "We heard the news but we were unsure of all the details".

Meyler said: "We've obviously heard the news. We are all thinking of him and his family and hope he can pull through and be strong".

"That's from the whole team and everyone".

The Welshman said: "My thoughts are with Liam Miller and his family this morning".

Miller started his professional career with Celtic before moving to United in the summer of 2004.

"The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United go out to Liam Miller and is loved ones at this hard time" a tweet from United read.

It was confirmed last night that former Celtic and Man United footballer Liam Miller, 36, is beginning chemotherapy this week to combat pancreatic cancer.

Miller moved to Australia in 2011 to join Perth Glory, but is now contracted to semi-professional American club Wilmington Hammerheads FC.

Bad news about Liam Miller keep the fingers crossed that he somehow pulls through.
