Responding to Nicola Sturgeon's speech to Stanford University, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
"The First Minister's global grievance tour stops off in California.
"There must be a crack in Nicola Sturgeon's silicon chip for her to want to compound the shock of Brexit with a new set of barriers that could see Scotland outside of both the UK and the EU."
"If Nicola Sturgeon is serious about partnership and interdependence, she should join our campaign to give the British public the final say on any Brexit deal. Keeping the whole UK in the EU is the best way to keep Scotland in the EU."
