The announcement stunned Scottish and British politics as Ms Sturgeon confirmed that she would be quitting after eight years in office.
This evening a large crowd of unionists gathered at the square in Glasgow city centre to celebrate her resignation.
Around 150 people waved union jack flags and chanted “ding dong the witch is gone”.
One man held up a placard reading: ‘Sturgeon is not Scotland.’
A speaker from the Glasgow Cabbie Facebook group popped a bottle of champagne and addressed the crowd through a speaker.
He said: “We stood by the last eight years and watched Nicola Sturgeon running this country and people into the ground. We would love to see the police involved to investigate.
“I’ve listened to many politicians on television today talking a lot of nonsense, that this was some sort of shock. This was no shock.
“Sturgeon has had this coming.”
Afterwards the crowd held a conga and marched through the square in celebration.
Ms Sturgeon’s announcement was made during a press conference at her Bute House residence in Edinburgh this morning.
The Nats leader said: “Since my very first moments in the job I have believed a part of serving well would be to know almost instinctively when the time is right to make way for someone else.
“In my head and in my heart I know that time is now. That it’s right for me, for my party and my country.”
She ended saying: “To the people of Scotland – to all of the people of Scotland – whether you voted for me or not please know that being your First Minister has been the privilege of my life.”
Ms Sturgeon said she will remain as an MSP from the backbenches and she will remain in office until a successor has been picked.
