Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his latest SPFL Team of the Week, with four-goal Ayr United striker Lawrence Shankland the star man…

GK - Liam Kelly (Livingston)
Kelly made great saves from Curtis Main, Barry Maguire and Ryan Bowman to preserve a clean sheet and help Livingston record a 2-0 win over Motherwell in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

DC - James Tavernier (Rangers)
Two assists from the right-back helped Rangers go top of the Ladbrokes Premiership table after a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Hearts at Tynecastle.

DC - Sean Dillon (Montrose)
The veteran impressed again in the centre of the Montrose defence as Stewart Petrie's side were able to continue their recent good form with a 2-0 win away to East Fife.

DC - Callum Fordyce (Queen of the South)
Queen of the South left it late but still managed to wrap up all three points against Partick Thistle. Stephen Dobbie scored the winner - then limped off with a hamstring strain - but it was strike-partner Lyndon Dykes and defender Callum Fordyce who stood out.

MR - Bobby Linn (Arbroath)
Two goals, two assists and a thoroughly deserved man-of-the-match award for Bobby Linn as Arbroath kept up their blistering start to the Ladbrokes League 1 season with a 5-2 victory over Stenhousemuir.

MC - Joe Thomson (Dunfermline Athletic)
The midfielder completely ran the show as Dunfermline beat Morton 3-0 at East End Park to move to within four points of the play-offs in the Ladbrokes Championship.

MC - Alan Power (Kilmarnock)
Once again the midfielder was excellent for Killie, breaking up play and driving them forward in the surprisingly comfortable 3-0 win over Hibs. Steve Clarke's men are just two points behind leaders Rangers.

MC - Ryan Christie (Celtic)
Christie continued his excellent recent form by scoring the only goal in the Betfred Cup final. As well as his match-winning heroics, the former Inverness CT man excelled in the centre of the park.

ML - James Keatings (Hamilton Accies)
The former Hearts and Hibs striker netted his first goal in the Ladbrokes Premiership - and what a beauty it was - as Hamilton netted a vital 3-1 win away to second-bottom St Mirren. Keatings also played a part in the two other goals.

FC - Zak Rudden (Falkirk)
Falkirk ended ICT’s long unbeaten run thanks to a late Scott Harrison goal in a 3-2 win that lifted them off the foot of the table. While the defender impressed, he's been usurped by the on-loan Ranger, who netted two goals amid a terrific performance leading the line.

FC - Lawrence Shankland (Ayr United)
There was only ever going to be one star man this week as Shankland tore Dundee United to shreds on Friday night, netting four goals in a 5-0 triumph to take his tally for the season to an incredible 26 before we reached December.
