Tommy McInally was a star of Celtic's team of the 1920s. He was a tremendous player with pace, trickery, passing ability and a cannonball shot - yet his record of only one Scottish Cup medal, two Scottish League medals and two Scottish caps was a profoundly disappointing one for a man of his talent. This is a lacking record which was mainly due to Tommy's self-destructive tendencies. This book deals with his two spells at Celtic - the team that he loved - and his sojourns at Third Lanark and Sunderland before he went on his travels and died in obscurity in 1955. He has now been dead for over fifty years, but questions still remain about Celtic's Bad Bhoy - 'the boy wonder', who had the potential to have been the greatest player of them all.
