I think it’s a fair question to ask why the family of a man who played for both Celtic and Man Utd need money. Surely the financial juggernaut that is Man U could look after them? And why can’t his testimonial be at Old Trafford?
Anyway for the record, I would have no problem with a charity match going ahead in a GAA ground so long as it did not lead to competitive games following suit
For some reason soccer lads get hysterical when it comes to talking about money. Changing in wet ditches while the GAA lads luxuriate in Dressing Rooms with actual hot showers could do that to a body I suppose.
Liam earned (at a conservative estimate) between 5-10 million quid in his playing career. If the Miller family have a few million left then I think it’s fundamentally wrong to be giving charity money to people who are already well off. However if the Miller family are in financial difficulty, this is a noble initiative and should be supported. When you consider recent revelations about the likes of Rehab and the CRC I don’t think it’s shameful to ask the question.
