The Republic of Ireland and former Manchester United midfielder was well-regarded by the Irish public, and hundreds of mourners attended the 36-year-old's funeral to pay tribute.

Miller made 21 appearances for the Irish national side, in addition to nine appearances for Manchester United before embarking on a career that included successful spells at Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers.

Irish head coach and assistant coach, Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane, attended the funeral alongside the likes of John O'Shea and Kevin Kilbane. The funeral follows the tributes of David Beckham and Wayne Rooney over the past few days. 

Remembered fondly for the skill and experience he brought to the A-League, Miller's brother-in-law, Dan Sheedy, said he wouldn't be remembered for football.

"To those who knew Liam best, Liam's legacy won't be about anything he achieved on a football pitch, though, on that, he achieved what was, to most of us, an impossible fantasy," he said.

"Liam was that most rare of things - he lived his dreams.

"He dreamed of playing for (his father) Billy's beloved Celtic. And he did. He dreamed of playing for Man United. And he did. And he dreamed of playing for Ireland. And he did.

"He achieved these dreams with a combination of his skill, sublime as it was, his humble personality and a fierce determination we have all seen resurface these last few of months.

"Football is not how we are going to remember Liam."
