Manchester United legends to be captained, managed by Roy Keane for Liam Miller tribute match

Roy Keane will manage and captain a team of Manchester United legends in a tribute match for Liam Miller.

Miller, a former teammate of Keane's at Old Trafford, died in February aged 36, and Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville have also agreed to play in a game against a combined Republic of Ireland and Celtic XI, managed by Martin O'Neill, at Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Sept. 25. 

Organiser Michael O'Neill has revealed how Miller's former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson helped get the idea of a tribute match off the ground.

"John O'Shea teed it up for me. Obviously John has still got a connection with Sir Alex," he told the Manchester Evening News. "I arranged to meet him in the same place, at Cheltenham, and had a chat with him and again the following day. He gave me his mobile number.

"He's been in constant contact since and he was doing his homework. One of the first things Sir Alex said to me was: 'Let's do a match.'

"Manchester United have been amazing, so facilitating, right up to Ed Woodward, and he has made a number of staff available with logistics."

Midfielder Miller moved to Old Trafford from Celtic in 2004 making 22 first team appearances and scoring twice. He also spent time at Leeds, Sunderland, QPR and Hibernian during a career that also included 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland.
