Former QPR loanee Liam Miller is set to begin chemotherapy as he continues to battle cancer, according to reports.
The midfielder, who also played for Manchester United and Celtic in his career, has reportedly been undergoing treatment in the US, according to BBC Sport pundit Tam McManus.
He tweeted: "Awful news about Liam Miller keep the fingers crossed that he somehow pulls through.
"Was in the USA for treatment this month and flys back tomorrow to start chemo here. He’s still fighting it. Will say a prayer for him tonight."
He also told a fan on Twitter that rumours that Miller had been taken to a hospice were not true, but said he was “fighting really hard” and that he couldn’t offer more details out of respect for the family.
The 36-year-old is said to be suffering from pancreatic cancer, but his family are yet to confirm.
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. Praying he can get better."
