President Michael D Higgins has led tributes to former Republic of Ireland global Liam Miller, who has died aged 36.

Miller, who won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland over a 16-year career, broke through at Celtic before he moved to Old Trafford in 2004.

BRENDAN RODGERS described the late Liam Miller as an "outstanding" talent who lived the Irish dream of playing for Celtic. "We send our deepest condolences to Liam's family at this hard time".

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family at this time. "Taken too young. Thoughts go out to his family".

There was a minute's silence before kick-off in Celtic's match with Partick Thistle in the William Hill Scottish Cup at Parkhead yesterday and the players wore black armbands as a mark of respect.

Celtic were among a number of Miller's former clubs to pay tribute to the midfielder. But contrary to what some people might think, I have not got a problem playing him. He leaves behind his wife Clare and three children.

The US club said: "We were heartbroken to hear of Liam's passing".

Tributes have poured in following the death of footballer Liam Miller, led by former clubs and teammates.

And prior to Ireland's Six Nations game with Italy at Croke Park, the IRFU sent their condolences to the Miller family, saying: "Waking up to the very sad news about Liam Miller. Horrific news. Thoughts and prayers with his family at this time".

From there he made the move to Australia where he lined out for Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City before returning to his native Cork City in 2015.

Former team-mate Louis Saha tweeted: "Devastating news about Liam Miller".

Hailing from County Cork, the 36-year-old passed away following illness and will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

"The news, we heard about it just recently, we didn't know how bad it was".

Steven Reid said he was a "top player and a great person" while Kevin Kilbane said he was "proud to have shared a dressing room with him". He was a quiet, unassuming young man and was popular with everyone at Carrington.
