The Cork native had been battling pancreatic cancer.

Miller returned home from America last November, where he had been playing for Wilmington Hammerheads.

The midfielder was capped 21 times by Ireland after coming to prominence under Martin O’Neill at Celtic, before joining Manchester United as a 24-year-old in 2004.

He played 22 times for United during two seasons at Old Trafford before going onto play for Leeds, Sunderland, QPR and Hibernian. Miller moved to Australia in 2011 where he had spells with Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City.

Before moving to North America, Miller joined Cork City for one season in 2015.
