Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with St Mirren's Cody Cooke the star man for his second-half hat-trick against Dundee...

GK - Benjamin Siegrist (Dundee United)
The goalkeeper made some very good first-half saves to preserve Dundee United's first-leg lead and set them up for the 3-0 victory over Inverness CT on Friday night. St Mirren now stand in the way of United and a return to the Ladbrokes Premiership.

DR - Cammy Kerr (Dundee)
Kerr was on the losing side at home to St Mirren but it was a spirited performance from the Ladbrokes Premiership's relegated side, especially when you consider they had a man sent off and were later reduced to nine men through injury. Kerr netted the opener and was an enthusiastic attacker down the right all game.

DC - Darren Brownlie (Queen of the South)
The centre-back headed clear anything that came his way as Queen of the South held on to their 3-1 first-leg advantage against Raith Rovers to remain in the Ladbrokes Championship for another season.

DC - Kyle Benedictus (Raith Rovers)
Benedictus put in a stellar showing at the other end in the 0-0 stalemate at Palmerston but the damage had been done to John McGlynn’s men in the first leg.

DL - Lennard Sowah (Hamilton Accies)
Hamilton got the victory they needed against St Johnstone to ensure safety in the Ladbrokes Premiership for another season. Though everyone in red and white played well, we've gone for Sowah for a lively performance up and down the left wing.

MC - David Turnbull (Motherwell)
Another excellent display from the young midfielder meant Motherwell ended the season on a high with a 3-2 win over Livingston. Turnbull netted twice and set up another in the first half, though still went into the interval disappointed after his penalty miss saw him fall short of a hat-trick.

MC - Graeme Shinnie (Aberdeen)
The Derby County-bound  player put in a typically Shinnie-esque performance in midfield as Aberdeen did all they could in an attempt to overhaul Kilmarnock and try to get third place in the Premiership, coming from behind to defeat Hibs at Easter Road.

MC - Ray Grant (Clyde)
Clyde will be playing in Ladbrokes League 1 next season after overturning a 1-0 first-leg deficit with a 2-0 triumph over Annan Athletic at Broadwood. While several players impressed, we've gone for Grant, who was good with his use of the ball and performed some necessary defensive work to curtail the threat of Christian Nade.

FC - Mikey Johnston (Celtic)
Johnston sparkled on Sunday as Celtic showed off their latest silverware, beating Hearts 2-1 on Ladbrokes Premiership trophy day with the young winger grabbing both goals.

FC - Cody Cooke (St Mirren)
St Mirren did all they could in their final match of the Ladbrokes Premiership season as Cooke came off the bench to net a second-half hat-trick and ensure all three points from the trip to Dundee. However, in the end, it wasn't enough to lift them above Hamilton and the play-offs await. Former Truro City forward Cooke is this week's star man.

FC - Eamonn Brophy (Kilmarnock)
Kilmarnock finished in third place for the first time since 1966 and gave Steve Clarke the perfect farewell present as the Rugby Park side defeated Rangers 2-1 on Sunday. They did so thanks to an 88th-minute penalty from Brophy, who showed nerves of steel to rifle his spot-kick into the corner.
