Outpouring of support from former teammates as Liam Miller battles pancreatic cancer

Outpouring of support from former teammates as Liam Miller battles pancreatic cancer

Liam Miller won the A-League premiership and championship with Brisbane Roar in 2014.

"Was in the U.S. for treatment this month and flys back tomorrow to start chemo here. Will say a prayer for him tonight".

"The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United go out to Liam Miller and his loved ones at this hard time", read a post from the club's official Twitter account.

The Welshman said: "My thoughts are with Liam Miller and his family this morning".

Among those first to send messages of support around the former midfielder was ex-Celtic and Arsenal striker John Hartson, who beat testicular cancer in 2009 after it spread to his brain and lungs.

Fellow former United player Danny Higginbotham said: "If true very sad news about one of my former teammates Liam Miller".

The 36-year-old spent two years at Old Trafford having been signed by Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2004, playing 22 games in all competitions for the Red Devils.

Having spent a number of years in Australia after leaving his final British club, Hibernian, Miller returned to his hometown team, Cork City, in 2015.

Miller has been playing in United States of America up until 2016 when he announced his retirement from football.
