At Celtic Park today, flags were flown at half mast while outside the ground, supporters placed shirts and scarves on rails to honour the Republic of Ireland midfielder.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said Miller lived the Irish dream of playing for the Parkhead club.
"It was a real sad moment last night when we got the message through at the hotel," he said.
"It is awful news. So young, 36 years of age. The dream of lots of Irish boys is to come across and play for Celtic and he did that and had a fantastic career.
"To lose your life that young and leave a young family behind is so sad.
"I thought the club paid a great tribute to him today and certainly he will always be in the memory of everyone here at Celtic."
Across the city of Glasgow, Rangers posted their own message sharing their neighbours' grief.
Leeds United players also wore black armbands for Miller who had a loan spell at Elland Road during the 2005/06 season.
Prior to Ireland's Six Nations game with Italy at Croke Park, the IRFU sent their condolences to the Miller family, saying: "Waking up to the very sad news about Liam Miller. It reminds us that there are far more important things in life than sport. We extend our condolences to our friends in @FAIreland and to Liam's family and friends. RIP."

Cork City manager John Caulfield has paid tribute to his former player Liam Miller, writes .
The thoughts of the club are with his family, his wife Clare and children Kory, Leo and Belle, Caulfield said.
He also remembered Miller's sons attending training during their father's year at Turner's Cross.
"I think everyone is shocked and saddened," said Caulfield.
"While we have known that he was very sick, we are just thinking of his family, particularly his wife and three kids. When he was here, his two sons, Kory and Leo, used to be at training quite a bit. It does put everything into perspective. It’s hard to imagine what has happened, just three years after he was here.
“He got to the highest level, winning international caps and playing for some big clubs. He was so modest, nothing ever went to his head. He came in every day and trained; a lovely person with a great attitude, a down to earth, humble guy.”
Brutal news to wake up to. Too many young men being taken from us. Thoughts with his fans in Cork and worldwide , his teammates , his parents ,his lovely wife, sons and daughter. Very difficult to accept.— Ronan O Gara (@RonanOGara10) February 10, 2018
RIP Liam. Cork Legend.
Speaking on TV3's Six Nations coverage, former Munster and Ireland out-half Ronan O'Gara said: "Condolences to Liam's lovely wife and his family. Many young people in Cork who supported football would have looked to Roy Keane first and Liam Miller next."
Books of condolences will be opened at Cork City's club shop in Douglas Village Shopping Centre and club office in Bishopstown when they re-open on Tuesday morning.
An impeccably observed minute's silence was held at Celtic Park in memory of Liam Miller, writes .
Before the game, Packie Bonner told BBC Scotland about his time as part of the Ireland set-up when Miller was first called up.
"I remember him breaking into the international team with Brian Kerr - I was on his coaching staff. He was an unassuming young man off the pitch but on it, he was a brilliant young player. It's a really, really sad day for his family and everybody connected with him down in Cork.
"I spoke to his mother recently and they were very sad about what was happening to him, and he's gone now."
On BT Sport 1, his former Man United teamamte Rio Ferdinand, said of Miller: "What a real, honest human. A genuine pure person. A great guy and sad to see someone taken away so early."
A minute's silence was also observed before Melbourne City's A-League match this morning and before all Cork Schoolboys League games.

Martin O'Neill has paid tribute to "an excellent footballer and a fantastic man", who will be "greatly missed, writes .
The Republic of Ireland manager gave Miller his big break at Celtic, and he recalled one of the midfielder's famous Champions League goals at Celtic Park.
"I remember the impact that Liam had in a big Champions League match against Lyon. We were pressing strongly and trying to find the breakthrough when Liam scored a magical goal that gave us momentum to win the game," said O'Neill.
"At the end of that season, Liam moved on to Manchester United but had already made a strong mark at Celtic Park and the players were extremely disappointed to see him go.
"Liam's passing is very sad and he will be greatly missed. He was an excellent footballer and a fantastic man."
Liam Miller's former teammates have paid tribute to a "down to earth" man off the field and "model pro" on it, after the 36-year-old died from pancreatic cancer yesterday, writes.
"Humble" and "gentleman" were the most used words to describe the former Celtic, Man United and Ireland midfielder.
“It is with great sadness that I learned of the death of Liam Miller, who brought skill and passion to his games, for the Republic of Ireland, Cork City, Celtic, Manchester Utd. and other clubs. I send my condolences to his family and friends, and all those who love Irish sport.”— President of Ireland (@PresidentIRL) February 10, 2018
"I genuinely look back and think, 'I played for Celtic', my boyhood club," Miller told the Irish Examiner after joining Cork City in February 2015.
"I dreamed of playing for Man United and I got that opportunity as well. I don't know how many other people can say they played for their two childhood clubs, or even one childhood club.
"Of course, I would have loved to play more games, don't get me wrong, but I got to learn from some of the best players ever. Looking back, it was wonderful.
"Growing up for me, I just wanted to play football. And as I got better and better, the opportunities came around for me. Nothing's ever guaranteed - you could get an injury in the morning, touch wood - but I worked my socks off and the hard work paid off for me."
Celtic will hold a minute's silence and wear black armbands when they welcome Partick Thistle to Celtic Park at 12.15pm.
Miller's former teammates, including John Hartson and Stiliyan Petrov who have suffered from other forms of cancer, expressed their dismay on a sad day.
