Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with Edinburgh City striker Blair Henderson the star man for his hat-trick against Albion Rovers.

GK - Craig Samson (St Mirren)
The Buddies won their first game back in the top flight thanks, in large part, to the heroics of their goalkeeper. In addition to making a couple of fine stops in open play, Samson also repelled Sofien Moussa's penalty with the game in the balance at 1-1.

DC - Ryan Porteous (Hibernian)
The young defender faced up to the challenge of Conor Sammon and Curtis Main and more than matched the physicality of those two as Hibs defeated Stephen Robinson's men 3-0 at Easter Road.

DC - Nikola Katic (Rangers)
Ten-man Rangers were unlucky to leave Pittodrie with just a point as they bettered the hosts throughout the match despite their one-man disadvantage. While several Rangers performers starred in the 1-1 draw, Katic gets the nod for a dominant showing at the back.

DC - Coll Donaldson (Inverness Caledonian Thistle)
The centre-back was a regular in this team last season and he's in here again after week one of the league campaign. ICT left the Falkirk Stadium with a 1-0 win thanks to a George Oakley goal and a superb defensive performance.

MR - Bobby Linn (Arbroath)
The winger netted twice, including a terrific strike, as Arbroath got off to an absolute flyer in League 1, demolishing Angus rivals Montrose 4-0 at Links Park.

MC - James Vincent (Dunfermline Athletic)
The Pars continued their fine form from the Betfred Cup with a 3-2 victory away to Dundee United as they announced themselves as legitimate Championship title contenders. While several visiting players impressed, it was Vincent's hard work in the centre which earns him a place.

MC - Tom Rogic (Celtic)
Rogic got his campaign off to a perfect start as he scored one and helped create two others in Celtic's 3-1 victory over Premiership new-boys Livingston.

MC - Peter Haring (Heart of Midlothian)
Two goals and a fine performance from the Austrian defender who has been converted into an all-action midfielder. His contribution, including a crucial equaliser three minutes after Accies took the lead, helped Hearts to a 4-1 win at Hamilton.

ML - Greg Taylor (Kilmarnock)
It's a shame for the defender that Andy Robertson and Kieran Tierney play in his position, otherwise everyone would be talking him up as Scotland's left-back of the future. This past weekend he continued his fine form from last season in Killie's 2-0 win over St Johnstone.

FC - Lawrence Shankland (Ayr United)
The striker continued his blistering start to the new season with a double over Partick Thistle on the opening day. The brace was enough for Ayr, who won the match 2-0.

FC - Blair Henderson (Edinburgh City)
An opening-day hat-trick for the former Stirling and Annan attacker helped Edinburgh City to thump Albion Rovers and get their League 2 campaign off to the best possible start with a 4-0 triumph. He is this week's star man.
