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.
At Brockville in a Scottish Cup tie against Falkirk, with Celtic two goals down, he scored directly from a corner-kick, had the goal disallowed and scored again with the retaken corner! A few months earlier he had scored for Ireland against England at Windsor Park with a similar corner-kick from the left, and that was after the cheeky Tully had assured his immediate opponent, Alf Ramsey, that the Englishman would never be picked for his country again after he had finished with him!
And in the twilight of a career that brought silverware and a League flag to Celtic Park, he was outstanding at Hampden Park when Celtic defeated Rangers in the League Cup Final by seven goals to one…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.

Celtic Quick News on News Now. Charlie Tully - was a great Celt, yet his medal tally was disappointing. Yet they were the successful team.
Perhaps Tully enjoyed the game too much. He did not always train as hard as he could have and of course he was able to take full advantage of the weak Parkhead regime. Jock Stein, on the other hand, who played with Tully was quite adamant that there would have been no place for Tully in the team that he managed.
