With less than 24 hours to go until the polls open in Scotland, the two rival referendum campaigns have issued a final rallying call to voters as they prepare to decide the future of the United Kingdom in tomorrow's historic ballot.

He's not alone, of course, with Labour Leader Ed Miliband falling foul of a bacon sandwich, while David Cameron appears to be fixated with dead fish in every photo op he appears in.

As Salmond today said he was confident voters would back independence when they go to the polls, here, we recall some of the First Minister's most valiant efforts to encourage Scottish voters to back team ‘Yes’.
