Liam Miller, a former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder and a dad of three has died at the age of 36 after a battle with cancer.

It should be noted that he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November, after which he returned from the USA where he had been playing, to his home in Cork.

He is survived by his wife, Clare and their three children.

His achievements                  
In 2003-2004, the 21-cap international came through the youth ranks at Celtic and helped them to the Scottish title before he moved to Manchester United.

He made 22 appearances and scored two goals for them during his time there.

Even though he never earned a regular place in the starting line-up at Manchester United, he went on to enjoy a fantastic career at a number of other clubs.

In line with that, before he moved to Sunderland, he spent time on loan at Leeds, and then while at Sunderland, he helped the Black Cats to the 2006-2007 Championship title.

Out of 60 appearances for the Wearsiders, he scored three times before the spells with QPR and Hibernian, after which he moved to Australia.

Late on Friday evening, the former clubs he played in, and Real Monarchs where he earned a coaching role in last June led the tributes.

In line with that, Leeds tweeted that, “Everyone at Leeds United are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former #LUFC midfielder Liam Miller.” Then they continued that, “Our thoughts are with his family and friends.”
