Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has offered his support to former Ireland worldwide Liam Miller in his battle with cancer.

Miller played in Europe for more than a decade, spending time with clubs like Manchester United, Celtic and Sunderland, before opting for a sea change in Australia.

Ex-Celtic defender Darren O'Dea, now with Dundee, said: 'All my thoughts and love with Liam Miller and his family'.

My thoughts are with Liam miller and his family this morning.

Believed to be back home in Cork receiving treatment, former Hibs player Tam McManus tweeted that Miller: "was in the U.S. for treatment this month and flies back tomorrow to start chemo here".

MARTIN O'NEILL says his thoughts are with Liam Miller after the former Ireland star was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Fellow professionals both current and former expressed their well wishes to the midfielder on Twitter.

Very sad news about one of my old teammates Liam Miller, thinking of him and his family at this very hard time.

McManus added that Miller starts chemotherapy on Monday.
