Alex Salmond feels 'sad' after friendship with Nicola Sturgeon ended

SNP leader today pushed back against a comment reported in an American magazine in which he was quoted as saying he could have "destroyed" Sturgeon's caree r if he had wanted to.

Salmond insisted his words were "totally taken out of context" - and said they were a reference to his appearance before a cross-party committee of MSPs in February where he was asked to call for the First Minister's resignation and refused to do so.

The profile of Sturgeon in the New Yorker threatened to reignite the war of words between the two political heavyweights just days before voters go to the polls to elect the next Scottish Parliament.
