Celtic and Manchester United have both tweeted their support for former player Liam Miller.

Reports emerged on Sunday night that the 36-year-old was battling pancreatic cancer and is currently receiving chemotherapy treatment in the United States.

‘The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Celtic Football Club are with Liam Miller and his family at this time,’ read a tweet from the Scottish champions’ Twitter account.

Miller made his professional debut for Celtic having come through the youth ranks at the club. Having established himself as a full international with the Republic of Ireland, he later moved to Manchester United, making over 20 appearances for the club before moving to Sunderland.

‘The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United go out to Liam Miller and is loved ones at this difficult time’ a tweet from United read.

Miller also represented Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers in England, and also moved back north of the border to play for Hibernian in 2009. 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.
