Liam Miller dejected

Tributes are being paid to former Ireland worldwide Liam Miller, who's passed away aged 36.

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

During his career Miller earned 21 senior caps for his country between 2004 and 2009 and scored one goal against Sweden at Landsdowne Road.

The previous Celtic, Manchester United and Leeds United midfielder played for Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City in the vicinity of 2011 and 2014.

The wider world of football and sport paid tribute including Fifa, Rangers and Munster Rugby.

Former teammate Ferdinand added: "Waking up to the news that my old @ManUtd teammate Liam Miller passed away". Miller leaves behind a wife and three children.

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

Another fan site paid tribute by writing Miller will "forever be part of the Leeds family".

Celtic held a minute's silence in tribute to their former midfielder before the Scottish Cup game against Partick Thistle on Saturday. The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the CSL are with Liam's family tonight. "Proud to have shared a dressing room with him over the years".

"He was an unassuming young man off the pitch but he was a brilliant player on it". Liam was at United when I first signed.

"I hope they (his family) can take even the smallest bit of comfort with the outpour of messages and people wanting to say nice things about him". "For the people here who know him and his family in particular it is bad news".

"He was obviously in a coma but they still say the person hears what's going on around you so we were just chatting like normal - amusing stories through our childhood and stuff like that".
