Charlie Tully belonged to a time when players were underpaid and exploited, but he played football with a smile on his face. He was a man born to entertain and captivate, but a footballer above everything else.
After the wartime years the famous Glasgow club had slumped to the edge of relegation, but things were different on Charlie's arrival: the crowds rolled up to see this brilliant inside-forward.
The legend grew, as did the stories, but one thing could be said of Charlie Tully: very often his exploits exceeded the myths surrounding him.
