Five names added to Man United and Ireland squads for Liam Miller match

Fans heading along to the game will get to see even more familiar faces.

Former Manchester United assistant coach has shared the squad lists for the Liam Miller Tribute Match and there are a handful of additions from the squads announced last month.

The game, which will be held in memory of the late Liam Miller, will be broadcast live, on Virgin Media Three, from Pairc Uí Chaoimh from 3pm on Tuesday, with coverage beginning from the ground at 2pm. The game will be between the Manchester United Legends and Republic of Ireland and Celtic Legends. Miller played for all three teams during his career.

Proceeds from the broadcast of the match, including all advertising and sponsorship revenues, will go straight to the Liam Miller Fund, which will be used to help Liam’s wife Clare and their three children Kory, Leo and Belle. Marymount Hospice and other charities will also benefit from the event.

Phelan, a long-time assistant to Alex Ferguson at United, will assist United Legends boss Roy Keane on the sidelines for the game.

His shared squad-list revealed that former United defenders John O'Shea and Wes Brown were both added to the United Legends panel.


Ireland and Celtic Legends have been boosted by adding Stephen Kelly and Ian Harte, as well as former Hoops defender Johan Mjalby.

It looks (from the list below) that four players included in last month's squad-list - Ronny Johnsen, Lee Carsley, Neil Lennon and Shane Supple - will not be involved.
