The 36-year-old Irishman is reportedly headed back to his homeland from the United States, where he has been receiving chemotherapy treatment.

Miller helped lead Ireland to 21 victories between 2004 and 2009. His only senior international goal came against Sweden in 2006.

“I hope he can get through this difficult time of his life,” said former Celtic team-mate John Hartson.

“Obviously all our thoughts go out to him and his family,” added Republic of Ireland manger Martin O’Neill.

Miller began his career with Celtic in 1997 as a youth and then moved on to the senior team in 2000. He also played for Leeds, Sunderland, QPR and Hibernian before heading to Australia to play for Perth Glory (2011-2013), Brisbane Roar (2013-2014) and Melbourne City (2014).

He then returned to Ireland to play for Cork City before playing for semi-professional American team Wilmington Hammerheads in North Carolina in 2016.

Celtic wrote on their official Twitter account: “The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Celtic Football Club are with Liam Miller and his family at this time.”

And Manchester United tweeted: “The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United go out to Liam Miller and his loved ones at this difficult time.”

According to The Guardian, Miller is suffering from pancreatic cancer.

Miller helped Celtic win the Scottish Premier League title in 2004.
