Scottish Premiership Team of the Week

It is as you were in the Scottish Premiership title race after Celtic claimed a dramatic win at Motherwell to respond to Rangers’ comprehensive victory against Hearts.

The Ibrox side dominate the latest team of the week after they maintained their two-point lead at the top of the table after an impressive 5-0 victory at Ibrox.

Celtic responded by coming from behind to beat Motherwell 3-1 at Fir Park and have one player included in the best XI.

There are two Kilmarnock players after they beat Aberdeen 2-0, there is one St Mirren player represented after their 2-0 win at home to St Johnstone.

Ross County take the final place after winning 3-2 against bottom-of-the-table Livingston.

Here, WhoScored take us through their top five performers based on the stats…
