RIVALS TEAM REJECTED.
Craig Williamson formed Old Firm United to send out a "positive message".
But the Scottish Supporters' Football League knocked back their application - because it broke strict rules saying teams can only be linked to a single club.
Craig, back left above, said: "The message I got was that we could be Rangers or Celtic, but not both.
"This is the very attitude which led me to try and create the team."
But league secretary Willie Mahomet said: "The whole ethos of the league is it's for supporters of each club."
A spokesman for anti-sectarianism charity Nil By Mouth said: "Anything that helps break down barriers and unites people should be welcomed."
