Many of Liam Miller’s former international teammates took to Twitter to show support for the Cork man as it was revealed that he is battling cancer.

It was confirmed last night that former Celtic and Man United footballer Liam Miller, 36, is beginning chemotherapy this week to combat pancreatic cancer.

Several Irish internationals, as well as the wider footballing community, used social media to wish their former teammate well and express support for him as he battles the illness.

Noel Hunt wrote “Such sad news about my old Room mate Liam Miller, Pray to God he pulls through this battle with Cancer, my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.”

John Hartson, who himself was diagnosed with testicular cancer, also wished Liam the best with his treatment.

Miller has been playing in USA up until 2016 when he announced his retirement from football. His old clubs also wished him well.
