The former Republic of Ireland international also played for Manchester United, Leeds United, Celtic and Sunderland.
Aaron said: “RIP Liam thoughts go out to his family way to young.”
Melbourne City tweeted: “We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former @MelbourneCity midfielder Liam Miller. Our thoughts are with his friends, former teammates and family at this time.”
