Former A League Player Liam Miller Dies Aged 36

So sadly, Liam Miller passed away on Friday night at the age of just 36.

The father-of-three, who was four days short of his 37th birthday, also played for Celtic and Manchester United during an illustrious career, which took him to five countries and saw him represent his country on 21 occasions.

Miller then joined Sunderland in 2006 where he played for two-and-a-half seasons, helping Mick McCarthy's side earn promotion to the Premier League in his first year on Wearside.

"Many young people in Cork who supported football would have looked to Roy Keane first and Liam Miller next". "We extend our condolences to his loved ones at this extremely hard time".

A spokesperson said: "The thoughts and prayers of everyone at the club and the Celtic family are with Liam's family and friends at this deeply sad time. Thoughts are with his family and friends".

Miller also won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland at worldwide level.

Although peace has returned to the valley after a military operation in 2009, security had been a primary concern in the region. The injured were later shifted by rescue officials to a hospital in Saidu Sharif area of Swat, according to government sources.

His former club Celtic held a minute's silence before their Scottish FA Cup win over Partick Thistle today while fans have been sharing videos of their favourite goals from Miller.

In a message that served to underline just how cruel Miller's passing is, Michael Carrick - now United captain - paid tribute to a former teammate of the same age.

"Our thoughts are with Liam?s family".

Cambridge United's Irish manager Shaun Derry described Miller as "a gifted footballer and a true gentleman" while the former United and Ireland defender Paul McGrath said he was "taken way too soon".

A brief spell at Loftus Road was followed by stints at Hibernian, Australian clubs Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City, home-town club Cork City and, most recently, Wilmington.

Former Ireland teammate Steven Reid said: "RIP Liam Miller". He was a quiet, unassuming young man and was popular with everyone at Carrington. We have the masseurs and Kendo [first-team coach John Kennedy] that know him as well and you don't hear anything but good things about him.
