"The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United go out to Liam Miller and his loved ones at this hard time", read a post from the club's official Twitter account. All our thoughts go out to them.

Miller retired from playing previous year and had returned to Ireland with his wife and three children to complete his UEFA coaching qualifications. "A very young man, 36 years of age, it puts things in perspective anyway".

The news was revealed by his former Hibs colleague Tam McManus, who also said Miller is due to start chemotherapy. Later playing in Australia, he then moved to home town club Cork City, before finishing his career in America with semi-professional club, Wilmington Hammerheads.

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

Ex-Celtic defender Darren O'Dea, now with Dundee, said: 'All my thoughts and love with Liam Miller and his family'.

He tweeted: "Awful news about Liam Miller keep fingers crossed that he somehow pulls through".

Miller won 21 caps for the Republic between 2004 and 2009, and current Ireland global David Meyler said the squad are thinking about their compatriot.

Speaking at his press conference this morning ahead of the second leg of Ireland's World Cup play-off against Denmark, O'Neill offered his support to the former midfielder.

"That's from the whole team and everyone".
