Ex-Celtic and Manchester United midfielder, Liam Miller, is returning to Ireland to receive treatment for pancreatic cancer. All our thoughts go out to them.

United also used their official Twitter account to say: "The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United go out to Liam Miller and his loved ones at this hard time".

"He's a very young man, 36 years of age".

Miller began his career with Celtic in 2000, winning the Scottish Premiership in 2004 before leaving that same summer.

We wish him nothing but the best in his fight ahead, and hope for a speedy recovery.

Former Hibs player Tam McManus tweeted that Miller - who played for Celtic, Manchester United and Sunderland - had been in the USA for treatment but had returned home to start chemotherapy today.

Later in his career, Miller would spend some years in Australia's A-League, before returning home to play with Cork City in 2015 before heading overseas again, joining the Wilmington Hammerheads in North Carolina.

Many of his former clubs and colleagues have publicly expressed their support for Miller through social media.

Charlie Adam tweeted: "Thoughts are with Liam miller and his family at this tough time.#staystrong".

He also has 21 senior worldwide caps, and one goal, for the Republic of Ireland.

"My thoughts are with Liam Miller and his family this morning".

The Hull midfielder said on Monday: "Obviously we heard the news, we're unsure about the details, but our thoughts go out to his family and we're just thinking about him and we just hope he can pull through and he's strong".
