Celtic legend Tommy McInally was a loveable rogue, a firm favourite with fans and an acknowledged football genius. Brilliant with the ball at his feet and with a natural flair few could match, it was his flaws off the pitch that would cut short one of football’s most dazzling careers. When Tommy McInally joined Celtic as a 19-year-old, he was immediately hailed as the new ?boy wonder’. He was an instant success and lit up Celtic Park for a few unforgettable seasons. He also went on to play for the national side and was Scotland’s number one sports personality in the 1920s. Until it all started to go wrong. Tommy McInally ? Celtic’s Bad Bhoy? charts the remarkable rise and fall of football’s Peter Pan, the one-time darling of the Celtic Park terraces whose appetite for partying and mischief-making would lead eventually to his downfall. But, despite his fall from grace, the name of Tommy McInally will remain forever in the pantheon of Celtic greats. After all, none other than Celtic’s legendary manager Willie Maley called Tommy McInally ?the greatest Celt of them all.’
