Former Celtic, Manchester United and Hibernian midfielder Liam Miller has died at the age of 36 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Miller, who won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland between 2004 and 2009, was diagnosed with cancer last year and had since been undergoing treatment in the United States and Ireland.

Hibernian wrote on Twitter: “We are incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of former Hibernian midfielder Liam Miller.

“Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”

Miller made his professional debut for Celtic in 2000 after coming through the youth ranks at Parkhead and helped them win the Scottish Premiership title in 2004.

Miller made his professional debut for Celtic in 2000 after coming through the youth ranks at Parkhead and helped them win the Scottish Premiership title in 2004.

He moved from Glasgow to Manchester United on a free transfer, making 22 appearances under Sir Alex Ferguson in two seasons – which included a spell on loan at Leeds – before moving on to Sunderland in 2006.

Miller was part of the Black Cats squad that won promotion to the Premier League in 2007 before he joined QPR two years later.

A short spell at Loftus Road was followed by stints at Hibernian, Australian clubs Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City, home-town club Cork City and, most recently, Wilmington.
