Sunderland say they're "saddened to hear the news of his passing" while Celtic have extended their thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

The Irish professional footballer was diagnosed with cancer in November previous year and had been undergoing treatment in the United States and Ireland until his demise.

Miller, who played for Celtic, Manchester United, Leeds and Sunderland, had been battling cancer.

Celtic held a minute's silence in tribute to their former midfielder before the Scottish Cup game against Partick Thistle on Saturday.

"The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the CSL are with Liam's family tonight".

President Michael D Higgins has led tributes to former Republic of Ireland global Liam Miller, who has died aged 36.

"I was coming through when he was playing and when you are a young boy you look up to the ones who are playing".

And looking back, it should have been obvious that the Russian never had any ties to sensitive information. That, at least, is the official story as reported by The New York Times Friday night.

Miller has 21 senior worldwide caps, and one goal, for the Republic of Ireland. "The masseurs here and Kendo [first team coach and former player John Kennedy] knew him".

Tributes for the Cork-born player have poured in on social media.

Former Sunderland team mate Kevin Kilbane wrote on 'Sad hearing the bad news that Liam Miller has passed away this evening, taken far too soon by a terrible disease. "RIP Liam, YNWA", Celtic said on Twitter.

The Championship club wrote: "We are saddened to hear this evening that former #SAFC midfielder Liam Miller has passed away".

Miller was on the move again in 2009, this time to QPR with a short spell at Loftus Road followed by a two-year stint at Hibernian before his Australian experience. "We were pressing strongly and trying to find the breakthrough when Liam scored a magical goal that gave us momentum to win the game".

Miller is survived by his wife Clare and his three children Kory, Leo and Belle. He was a quiet, unassuming young man and was popular with everyone at Carrington.
