Another of Miller’s old clubs, Celtic, announced the death of the 36-year old who painfully died of Cancer.
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.
It was reported in November that Miller was suffering from cancer, his former clubs rallying around him and his family.
Miller’s death on Friday brought tributes from a number of his former clubs – including Leeds United, Hibernian and Sunderland.
“Everyone at Leeds United are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former Leeds midfielder Liam Miller,” the Championship club wrote.
