Manchester United Surfers Loss As Former Player Passes Away At Early Age

Cork Schoolboys League tweeted the news, saying: "We have received the very sad news that Liam Miller has passed away tonight".

Miller's death on Friday brought tributes from a number of his former clubs - including Leeds United, Hibernian, QPR and Sunderland.

In a message that served to underline just how cruel Miller's passing is, Michael Carrick - now United captain - paid tribute to a former teammate of the same age. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time".

He played for Celtic and Manchester United in the Premier League, had stints with Leeds United and Sunderland, as well as time with Queens Park Rangers and Hibernian.

Dozens of Miller's former teammates have also paid tribute.

"Liam was so young and it is devastating for his family, friends and colleagues to have lost him so early in life". Miller leaves behind a wife and three children.

Miller also won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland at worldwide level.

LL Bean Is Ending Its Famous Lifetime Return Policy
For years, the outdoor retailer touted a lifetime return policy, accepting returns on items purchased years prior. And the famed ME clothier says it's ending the century-old policy because some customers were abusing it.

"I send my condolences to his family and friends, and all those who love Irish sport". The club held a minute's silence before their 3-2 fifth round Scottish Cup victory over Partick Thistle and all home players wore black armbands as a mark of respect. Thoughts are with all his family and friends at this horrendous time.

Many of Miller's former clubs and team-mates have expressed their sadness, including former Celtic team-mate Stiliyan Petrov.

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". "I don't know how many other people can say they played for their two childhood clubs, or even one childhood club".

Chris Sutton, who also played with Miller at Celtic, tweeted: "Terribly sad news about Liam Miller".

Fine Gael councillor Des Cahill told Independent.ie: "As a fan I particularly remember him playing for Celtic and latterly for Cork City. Thoughts and prayers with his loved ones".

"He was an unassuming young man off the pitch but he was a brilliant player on it".
