Miller linked to Cork City move

Liam Miller is the latest player to be linked to John Caulfield’s Cork City, according to the Evening Echo.

The former Celtic and Man United midfielder had been playing in Australia in recent years, but was released by his club Brisbane Roar by mutual consent recently.

It is understood Miller, who will turn 34 next February and has a young family, is open to a return to Ireland. With Caulfield on the look out for a creative midfielder Miller could be a solution, even in the short term.

Ovens native Miller, who played alongside Colin Healy at Ballincollig AFC when he was a teenager, had joined Brisbane from Perth Glory last year where he won the league.

Now he’s available and would bring vast experience to the Cross.

After stints at Celtic and then the Red Devils, he played with Leeds United during the 2005–06 season, before joining Sunderland, under Roy Keane.

Further switches saw him line out for QPR, before he returned to the Scottish Premier League, with Hibs.

The former Irish international then headed Down Under to the A-League’s Perth Glory in 2011, but could now be set for a fresh start.

Despite his age, Miller is still an energetic presence in midfield, and after recruiting Karl Sheppard from Shamrock Rovers last weekend, Caulfield is in the market for new blood to bolster City’s title challenge in 2015.
