Former Irish global Liam Miller is battling cancer

Former Irish global Liam Miller is battling cancer

Former teammates including Charlie Adam, Noel Hunt and Chris Sutton have tweeted their support for Irishman Miller and his family.

Reports emerged on Sunday night that the 36-year-old was battling pancreatic cancer and is now receiving chemotherapy treatment in the United States.

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 now plays for Wilmington Hammerheads.

"I gave him his debut and he played wonderfully well in a Champions League game one evening, he was absolutely outstanding", O'Neill told reporters at today's press conference.

"The news - we heard about it just recently, we didn't know how bad it was - and obviously all thoughts go out to him and his family".

"It puts things in perspective anyway".

Miller then joined League of Ireland outfit Cork City in 2015 before making the move to America to play for third-tier North Carolina-based side Wilmington Hammerheads in February 2016. "We are all thinking of him and his family and hope he can pull through and be strong".

Very sad news about one of my old teammates Liam Miller, thinking of him and his family at this very hard time.

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

Ex-Celtic defender Darren O'Dea, now with Dundee, said: 'All my thoughts and love with Liam Miller and his family'.
