Miller was dropped from the Roar’s starting side after its round one loss to Adelaide United and was due to play for the club’s youth side on Saturday, but the former Manchester United and Sunderland man failed to turn up.

Brisbane manager Mike Mulvey refuted claims Miller was a no-show due to frustration, telling Fairfax Media he wasn’t fit to start the match.

However, the Roar released a statement today announcing it had parted ways with Miller by “mutual consent”.

“We brought Liam here to strengthen our squad and play good quality football. He was an integral part of our success as a squad last season and we thank him for his service to the club,” Mulvey said on Thursday.

“It’s always disappointing to lose a player of Liam’s calibre but both player and club decided this was the best outcome. We wish him and his family all the best for his future.”

Miller was a key member of the Roar’s championship-winning side last season after making the move from Perth Glory.
