    Former Celtic, Manchester United and Hibernian midfielder Liam Miller has died at the age of 36.

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

    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, subsequently moving to Manchester United.

    Spells followed at Sunderland, Queens Park Rangers, Hibs, Australian clubs Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City, hometown club Cork City and, most recently, Wilmington.

    Celtic paid tribute to Miller, tweeting: "Everyone at #CelticFC is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former midfielder Liam Miller. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time. RIP Liam, YNWA."

    Man United wrote: "Manchester United is deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of our former midfielder Liam Miller. We extend our condolences to his loved ones at this extremely difficult time."
