Following the First Minister's rejection of a cross party effort to Willie RennieWillie Renniedeliver more powers for Scotland following a No vote, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"The First Minister needs to wake up and smell the coffee. With less than a quarter of voters backing independence the First Minister needs to accept that he's losing the argument. Today's poll clearly shows that most voters back my policy of more powers.

"The Liberal Democrats have published our plans for Home Rule in a federal UK, Reform Scotland has produced Devo Plus and the IPPR's DevoMore is out tomorrow.

"If he is genuinely interested in strengthening powers of the Parliament he should take up my genuine offer and work with us to build a consensus."
