Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has accused his Scottish counterpart of trying to gain a political advantage from the Commonwealth Games.
Scottish Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said in an interview with the Observer newspaper: "The momentum is with us and as we come out of the Commonwealth Games at the weekend that is us into the final strait of the campaign and that momentum will be visible."
But at a training session of Murrayfield Wanderers in Edinburgh, Clegg said: "I think it was very misplaced and gauche of Nicola Sturgeon this morning to try and extract political advantage from the Commonwealth Games."
The leader of the Liberal Democrats added: "I never for one minute thought that sport, and the fact that everyone can enjoy watching Commonwealth sport, was suddenly going to influence how people vote on the future of Scotland - whether it remains in the UK or not."
