League champion Miller dies, aged 36

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

The Cork man was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November and was 36-years-old.

He won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland over 16 years, breaking through at Celtic before he moved to Old Trafford in 2004.

Sharing a picture of Miller wearing the famous red jersey on Instagram, Beckham wrote: "Our thoughts are with Liam's family..."

Ex-footballers Chris Sutton and Stiliyan Petrov, both of who played for Celtic, led the tributes to their former teammate.

Former Celtic star John Hartson, who himself battled cancer, tweeted his condolences, adding, "Rest in peace young man".

He then moved south to Manchester United on a free transfer, making 22 appearances under Sir Alex Ferguson in two seasons - which included a spell on loan at Leeds - before joining Sunderland in 2006.

The location of the speech carried symbolic weight, alluding to the longstanding trade relationship between the USA and Canada. In 1988, Reagan and then-Prime Minister Brian Mulroney signed the first free trade agreement - a precursor to the Nafta.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will wear black armbands in Miller's memory for Sunday's televised clash against Newcastle at St James' Park.

Miller also spent three years in Australia, playing for three clubs in the A-League, before a season with his hometown club Cork City. We extend our deepest condolences to his loved ones at this hard time.

"Such tragic news... my thoughts go out to his family!"

Hibernian FC also paid tribute to their former midfielder. A minute's silence will be observed before all CSL games this weekend.

Former team-mate Louis Saha tweeted: "Devastating news about Liam Miller". Miller leaves behind a wife and three children.

Miller also had spells with Leeds United, Sunderland, Hibernian Perth Glory and Cork City, before ending his career with Wilmington Hammerheads in the US. "Liam was full of courage on and off the field, and we can see from the emotional tributes that he gave joy and inspiration to so many", he said.
