The former Manchester United, Leeds and Celtic midfielder has been in America for treatment on as yet unconfirmed condition, which some reports suggest is pancreatic cancer.

Tweets sent by the ex-Republic of Ireland international's former clubs and team-mates suggest that he is battling a serious illness, with Tam McManus, Alex Bruce and Noel Hunt having mentioned cancer in their messages.

Miller was part of the Sunderland squad that won promotion to the Premier League in 2007 but moved again in 2009, this time to QPR.

Former Celtic player Chris Sutton also wished him a speedy recovery on twitter.

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

"He starts chemo tomorrow and is fighting hard really can't go into any more detail than that out of respect for him and family", said McManus.

"We're thinking about him and we hope he can pull through".

"My thoughts are with Liam Miller and his family this morning".

Miller moved to Australia in 2011 to join Perth Glory, but is now contracted to semi-professional American club Wilmington Hammerheads FC.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of his side's World Cup playoff against Denmark, O'Neill expressed his shock.

"That's from the whole team and everyone".

Jacob Burns, the former Leeds and Australia midfielder who is now head of football at Perth Glory, tweeted: "In shock!"
