SPFL Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, singling out new Hibs keeper Conrad Logan for special recognition.

Craig Fowler, midfield general of the Terrace Scottish Football Podcast, selects his SPFL Team of the Week, singling out new Hibs keeper Conrad Logan for special recognition.
GK - Conrad Logan (Hibernian)
The reserve goalkeeper played his first game of football since December 2014 in the Scottish Cup semi-final - not that you would have known it from his performance. Logan repelled three one-on-ones, made a terrific low save from Paul Paton and saved two penalties to help Hibs into the Hampden final. This week's star man.
DR - Jason Naismith (St Mirren)
Naismith made his first appearance since August in St Mirren's impressive 3-1 victory at home to rivals Morton. The defender has been out of action through injury and made a welcome return to the side, bombing forward routinely from full-back during the Buddies' win.
DC - Guy Demel (Dundee United)
United were no great shakes against Hibs but there was a noticeable improvement in their performance after Demel replaced Coll Donaldson in the back four. The Ivorian's composure on the ball helped his side retain possession and diminished the threat from Hibs.
DC - Danny Wilson (Rangers)
Excellent in defence and just as good with his distribution, Wilson was the best member in a terrific performance from the Rangers back-line as they limited the chances created by rivals Celtic in Sunday's Old Firm semi-final win.
DL - Kieran Tierney (Celtic)
Celtic's best player on Sunday, as has been the case so many times this season, was their teenage left-back. He was solid in defence and provided an assist for Tom Rogic to net Celtic's second equaliser.
MR - Aidan Connolly (Raith Rovers)
Rovers fought back to maintain their excellent recent form away at Dumbarton. After a poor first half, the visitors came out a rejuvenated side in the second with Connolly at the heart of every promising attack as they turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-2 win.
MC - Andy Halliday (Rangers)
If Rangers were going to be victorious on Sunday then Halliday needed to get the better of the midfield battle with counterpart Scott Brown. Not only did the Rangers man do this, he dominated his opponent, giving Mark Warburton's side the basis for victory.
ML - Barrie McKay (Rangers)
The best player on the park in the Old Firm semi-final. McKay was excellent on the ball throughout the match, causing Celtic all sorts of problems and fired a terrific shot into the top corner to put Rangers 2-1 up.
FC - Robert Thomson (Brechin City)
The striker netted a hat-trick as Brechin blew away promotion hopefuls Peterhead at Glebe Park on Saturday. City have now won six of their last eight games and have gone from being almost certainties for automatic relegation to currently sitting only one point behind eighth-placed Stenhousemuir.
FC - Jordan Preston (Ayr United)
Preston scored two and created two as Ayr United swept past Stenhousemuir at Ochilview. Although Ayr are already in the play-offs and will face Peterhead in the first tie no matter what, it was still a good victory as they look to build some momentum.
FC - Craig Malcolm (Stranraer)
Malcolm netted twice as Stranraer all but confirmed their place in the Ladbrokes Championship play-offs with a 4-1 home victory over League 1 champions Dunfermline. The visitors had a much-changed line-up and Stranraer were able to take full advantage, moving themselves five points ahead of Albion Rovers with two games left to play.
