Former West Brom and Middlesbrough goalkeeper Alan Miller has sadly passed away at the age of 51.
Miller, who began his career at Arsenal, made 103 appearances for the Baggies and 64 for Boro, helping the Teesside club to promotion to the Premier League in 1995.
Miller also had spells at Birmingham, Blackburn and St Johnstone before retiring from the game in 2003 due to a back injury.
West Brom said the club were “desperately saddened” to hear of Miller’s passing.
Middlesbrough said on their website: “Alan sadly passed away at the age of 51 and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”
Devastated to hear the news that our team mate Alan Miller has passed away. He was one of life’s good guys. What a man. Heart of gold. RIP my friend @Arsenal

Former Arsenal player David Hillier said Miller was a “great friend and team-mate” who had been “taken way too soon”.
Another former Gunner, Ian Selley, said Miller was a “great character” as well as a “top goalkeeper”.
