I would imagine that if Liam Miller wanted everything broadcast he would contact the media or tweet himself.. maybe Im just old fashioned

I get what you are saying but there isn't all that much in the tweet really

Hartson is a cancer survivor himself. He had testicular and brain cancer. He spends a lot of time campaigning for awareness etc in this regard.

Maybe you are right and perhaps it was a private conversation. But I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.

Anyway, best wishes to the young man.

I'd say the tweet was put out there without any malice intended.If it were a case of any confidentiality or their conversation being kept private,then surely you'd suspect Hartson would have read between the lines.

As CB says Hartson is himself a cancer survivor and does an awful lot of fundraising for cancer charities every year. He's not someone trying to get publicity by name-dropping another victim, I think he's genuine and was very empathetic with his former Celtic team mate.

Hopefully LM can battle this

It's just different media for showing support, that's all.
