Hundreds attended the rally, with thousands expected to be present at the second event tomorrow.

George Square is seen by many in Glasgow as an important venue with a number of rallies hosted in 2014 in the build up to the referendum.

53% of voters in Glasgow backed independence and it is hoped by the campaigners that rallies and events will increase the demand for a second referendum.

Alex Salmond recently stated that he believed a second independence referendum would be held by 2018.
