CORK CITY MANAGER John Caulfield has confirmed that Liam Miller is leaving the club.

The former Ireland, Celtic and Manchester United midfielder returned from a spell in Australia to sign for his hometown 12 months ago.

He featured regularly for the Rebels in 2015 as they finished runners-up to Dundalk in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division and the FAI Cup.

However, 34-year-old Miller will not play a second season with the Leesiders — who have recently signed midfielders Greg Bolger and Gearoid Morrissey.

“I had a good chat with Liam,” said Caulfield. “He has a few options open to him at the moment and he isn’t part of the squad going forward. I want to wish Liam all the best, he is a fantastic professional and did really well for us last season.

He was a pleasure to have around the place and I just want to wish him the best of luck wherever he goes.”

Meanwhile, Danny Morrissey has signed a new deal with the club.
