Alex Salmond says being Scotland's first minister 'is great'
Alex Salmond has become Scotland's longest-serving first minister, overtaking former Scottish Labour leader Jack McConnell.
The SNP leader told BBC Scotland's Raymond Buchanan that being in the post was "great" and a "privileged".
He said: "I wake up every morning and look forward to the day ahead."
Mr Salmond insisted he would not go "on and on", but he added: "I want to see Scotland win the referendum, I want to see the opening of the door of opportunity in that referendum and I have no immediate plans to depart the scene."
