Alex Salmond has accused the No campaign of tricking voters over more powers for Scotland.
The First Minister, who announced his intention to resign on Friday, said Westminster leaders had already torn up their timetable for increased devolution.
The three leaders of the Conservatives, Labour and Liberal democrat parties have committed themselves to a timetable to deliver more powers for Scotland, but the SNP say they have missed their first deadline for a parliamentary motion.
However former Prime Minister Gordon Brown says work has already begun and he'll ensure the three Westminster leaders keep their promise to Scotland.
Speaking to STV News at his home in Strichen, Aberdeenshire, Mr Salmond said: "I suppose I feel sorry for those in the No side who were tricked by Westminster into believing there would be an immediate offer of extra powers.
"Within 24 hours they started to tear up the commitments."
The First Minister, who will formally leave the position once his succesor is chosen at the SNP conference in november, also spoke about the future of his party.
He said: "I think the SNP will do incredibly well politically, not just in the Scottish elections, but in the general election next year and for the SNP politically there is a wide open goal.
"But for me it is about what happens to Scotland.
"What happens to the SNP I care about greatly, but the SNP has a huge squad of talented people in the leadership team and a number of people could be an outstanding leader of the SNP and a first-class first-rate first minister of Scotland."
Mr Salmond indicated he would remain committed to representing his Aberdeenshire East constituency.
He continued: "It is a very, very encouraging thing to do, is being a constituency member of parliament.
"All politics is local you know, at heart it is all local and you could not represent a finer area and a finer set of people than the good folk of Aberdeenshire."
He added: "I was looking at the obvious celebrations from Downing Street the obvious relief that they had seen off the Scots, and I was thinking something came to me.
"The rhyme - I think it was Burns actually - 'So pause false wigs, in the midst o' yer glee, You've not seen the last of my bonnets and me.'"
Labour MP Gordon Brown said he would personally ensure further powers were delivered.
Mr Brown said: "I have charged myself with making sure the timetable is implemented.
"The timetable is unaffected by anything happening elsewhere."
