That's terribly sad news about Liam Miller.
For a few months in 03/04, it looked like Ireland would have a tremendous player for many years to come.
Still a very respectable career, even if it didn't live up to that early promise.

Miller began his professional career with Celtic in 2000, with whom he won a Scottish Premier League title in 2003/04.
At the end of that season Miller joined Manchester United. From there he would go on to play for Leeds United, Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers, before making the move back home to Cork City in 2015.
After a season with the Leesiders, Miller saw out his career in America.
At international level, Miller made his debut against the Czech Republic in 2004. A 2006 friendly against Sweden is where he left his most lasting mark in the green jersey.
Making a powerful run through the middle, Miller hit an absolute screamer to give Ireland an emphatic 3-0 win in Steve Staunton's first game in charge.
