Alex Ferguson pays tribute to Liam Miller

Tributes paid to former Celtic, Hibs and Manchester United star Liam Miller after death from cancer aged 36

Tributes have flooded in from across the world of football after the tragic passing of former and Celtic midfielder Liam Miller.

Celtic, his first club, tweeted: 'Everyone at #CelticFC is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former midfielder Liam Miller.

Hibs' official Twitter account read: "We are incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of former Hibernian midfielder Liam Miller".

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family at this time.

His promising form there earned him a transfer to Manchester United, before spells at Leeds, Sunderland, QPR, Hibernian, Cork City and in Australia.

Miller, who retired only seven months ago, died after a brief fight with pancreatic cancer. "Taken too young. Thoughts go out to his family". He leaves behind his wife Clare and three children.

He also won 21 Ireland caps, scoring one goal, a long-range effort against Sweden in what was Steve Staunton's first game as manager.

"On behalf of all my staff who worked with Liam at the time, we send our deepest sympathy to his family".

Miller began his career at Celtic and before beating Partick 3-2 in the Scottish Cup, the Hoops wore black armbands prior to a minute's silence which was impeccably observed.

Former England captain and teammate of Miller's at Man Utd, David Beckham, said his thoughts were with Miller's family, adding: "Rest In Peace".

Celtic were among several of Miller's former clubs who tweeted their condolences on Friday night. "Thoughts and prayers with his loved ones". We all heard the news this morning. But contrary to what some people might think, I have not got a problem playing him. "I don't know how many other people can say they played for their two childhood clubs, or even one childhood club".

Brian McClair was a striker at Celtic and Manchester United and said: "At Manchester United, Liam Miller was a quiet, unassuming, humble lad who loved playing and training - always striving to give his all everyday".
