Former Hibs player Tam McManus tweeted that Miller - who played for Celtic, Manchester United and Sunderland - had been in the U.S. for treatment but had returned home to start chemotherapy today.

News emerged last night that the ex-Ireland midfielder has returned home to Cork to receive treatment for the illness, and several former team-mates of the 36-year-old have since come out to show their support today.

Liam Miller, 36, was sent messages of support from former team mates and fans in his battle against the disease.

"I gave him his debut at Celtic", O'Neill said.

"I heard about it just recently but didn't know how bad it was".

McManus added: "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".

We wish him nothing but the best in his fight ahead, and hope for a speedy recovery.

Miller played on Wearside for three years from 2006 to 2009.

"Awful news about Liam Miller keep the fingers crossed that he somehow pulls through", McManus tweeted.

The Welshman said: "My thoughts are with Liam Miller and his family this morning".

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

It has been reported that the former Republic of Ireland worldwide is fighting pancreatic cancer, although this is unconfirmed.
