Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill sends support to Liam Miller

Miller, who won 21 worldwide caps over a 16-year career, broke through at Celtic before he was lured to the Premier League by Alex Ferguson in 2004.

News emerged last night that the ex-Ireland midfielder has returned home to Cork to receive treatment for the illness, and several former team-mates of the 36-year-old have since come out to show their support today.

"We send our thoughts and prayers to Championship victor Liam Miller and his family at this hard time", they wrote.

A former Black Cats has begun chemotherapy as he battles cancer.

Miller, 36, now plays for semi-professional side Wilmington Hammerheads F.C.in North Carolina, U.S.A.

"All thoughts go out to him and his family".

Miller retired from playing past year and had returned to Ireland with his wife and three children to complete his UEFA coaching qualifications.

McManus added that Miller had been in the United States for treatment earlier this month.

Ex-Republic of Ireland global team-mate Noel Hunt added: "Such sad news about my old room-mate Liam Miller".

"My thoughts are with Liam Miller and his family this morning. One of the best players I've played with and a great guy off the pitch as well".

"The news - we heard about it just recently, we didn't know how bad it was - and obviously all thoughts go out to him and his family". Be strong buddy and remember a few of us have beaten it. "I'm thinking about you".
