Martin O'Neill And Former Clubs Offer Support To Liam Miller

Former Celtic and Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently proceeding with chemotherapy treatment.

Miller made 21 appearances for the Republic of Ireland and spent 2015 with league of Ireland side Cork City. Since the news broke, former teammates and coaches have rallied around Miller.

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has offered his thoughts to Miller ahead of tomorrow's World Cup qualifier against Denmark.

All thoughts go out to him and his family, [it] put things in perspective.

I gave him his debut at Celtic. He did wonderfully well in a Champions League game one evening, he was absolutely outstanding.

We heard about the news recently but we didn't know how bad it was. All thoughts go out to him and his family, I think he has three children as well.

The team's acting captain, David Meyler, added his well wishes on behalf of the entire team.

Obviously we heard the news, we're unsure about the details, but our thoughts go out to him and his family.

"We're just thinking about him and we just hope he can pull through and he's strong. That's from the whole team and everyone.

Miller's former clubs have also all offered their support to him during his fight.
