Former Celtic and Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller has died at the age of 36.

Miller, who won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland between 2004 and 2009, had been suffering from cancer.
Miller started his career at Celtic in 2000 before moving to Old Trafford four years later, also playing for Leeds, Sunderland, QPR and Hibernian.
Celtic said they were “deeply saddened”, adding that their “thoughts are with his family and friends”.
BBC Scotland pundit Tam McManus, who played with Miller at Hibs, tweeted: “I’m afraid it is true that Liam Miller has sadly passed away today. Thoughts are with all his family and friends at this horrendous time. So sad.”
Miller ended his career in the United States in 2016, having also played for three clubs in Australia and his hometown club Cork City before retiring.
McManus added that “the esteem Miller was held in by supporters of every club he either played for or against” showed through in the tributes paid to him on Friday.
He himself described Miller as “a wonderfully talented player but more importantly a lovely, humble person who never changed despite the wealth and success”.
Stiliyan Petrov, who played with Miller at Celtic, said he was “deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my friend and old team-mate Liam Miller”.
