Former teammates of ex-Celtic and Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller have revealed that he is battling cancer.
Miller began his career with Celtic in 2000, winning the Scottish Premiership in 2004 before leaving that same summer.
The midfielder joined Manchester United, where he scored two goals in 22 games in two years across all competitions.
His career has since taken him to Sunderland, QPR and Hibernian, and as far as Australia, the Republic of Ireland and the United States, where he currently plays for Wilmington Hammerheads.
Tam McManus, formerly of Hibs, revealed on Twitter that the 36-year-old was battling cancer.
Awful news about Liam Miller keep the fingers crossed that he somehow pulls through. Was in the USA for treatment this month and flys back tomorrow to start chemo here. He’s still fighting it. Will say a prayer for him tonight. 🙏🏻 #fuckcancer
