SPL Team of the Week - May 2

GOALKEEPER

ARTUR BORUC (Celtic): In a quiet week for custodians, the Parkhead man earns his place for producing a series of saves during a goalless first half against Motherwell. The Celts eventually won 4-0, as Neil Lennon continued his unbeaten league sequence, but Boruc helped them through some rocky passages in that opening 45 minutes.

DEFENDER

MICHAEL DUBERRY (St Johnstone): He made sure that Kilmarnock slipped further into the relegation mire with a commanding performance throughout the Saints' 2-1 win at Rugby Park. Quite apart from his poise at set pieces, Duberry's muscularity also allowed him to diminish the threat posed by the host's redoubtable Kevin Kyle.

DEFENDER

MARIUS ZALIUKAS (Hearts): The Tynecastle man is a class act and served up another exhilarating contribution, as his personnel rallied from falling behind to register a 2-1 success over their Edinburgh rivals, Hibs. In a minefield of a pitch at Easter Road, Zaliukas' impressive control and vision were instrumental in the late recovery.

DEFENDER

DARREN O'DEA (Celtic): He doesn't get the headlines he deserves, but following the mass cull of defenders which marked the ill-starred Tony Mowbray reign, O'Dea has been solidity personified in recent weeks and not only excelled in his side's drubbing of Motherwell, but also scored the second goal which put them on to easy street.

MIDFIELDER

DAVID TEMPLETON (Hearts): The teenager has received some lavish praise from seasoned observers and justified that billing with a superb showing in the Edinburgh derby in Leith. He caused myriad problems for struggling Hibs and also provided the assist which brought the visitors their decisive second goal.

MIDFIELDER

JOHN FLECK (Rangers): He hasn't made the impression which one might have envisaged 12 months ago, but the teenager was in effervescent mood, after gaining a recall to the starting ranks, by Walter Smith. His touch and pace were both evident during the 2-1 win and Fleck can use this performance to galvanise him in the future.

MIDFIELDER

AIDEN McGEADY (Celtic): Neil Lennon's appointment as manager - which will almost certainly be rubber-stamped if Celtic triumph in this week's Old Firm derby - has been exactly the incentive required by McGeady to reach the heights he achieved at the outset of the SPL campaign. He scored a goal, and buzzed with positivity and menace as Motherwell were swatted away by their opponents in the second half.

MIDFIELDER

GRAHAM CAREY (St Mirren): The on-loan Celtic wide man was in terrific form for his side during their 1-1 draw with Falkirk, which ensures that the Saints will remain in the SPL for another season. He delivers a mean dead ball, and posed problems for the Bairns all over the pitch to ensure Steven Pressley's men rarely gained the upper hand.

STRIKER

DOUGIE IMRIE (Hamilton): Billy Reid's men just keep rolling along, on a tide of hard work and esprit des corps, and were well worth their emphatic 3-1 away victory over hapless Aberdeen at Pittodrie. Imrie terrorised the home rearguard for much of the proceedings and created a host of fine chances for those around him.

STRIKER

KRIS BOYD (Rangers): It has been a long time coming - by his standards, at any rate - but Boyd's early goal against Dundee United at Tannadice was his 100th in the SPL and he celebrated that exploit with a return to the sharpness missing of late. The question now is whether Boyd wishes to stay where he is or move to a bigger stage in England.

STRIKER

NACHO NOVO (Rangers): The little fellow can never be faulted for lack of effort and his commitment shone through in the Ibrox team's 2-1 success on Tayside. His goal effectively wrapped up the points before the interval and he came close to adding to his tally on several other occasions as the match progressed.

BAD WEEK

JIMMY CALDERWOOD (Kilmarnock): He must feel as if he has moved out of the frying pan into the fire at Rugby Park. Another defeat to St Johnstone has dragged Kilmarnock level on points with Falkirk at the foot of the SPL table and ensured that it will be squeaky-bum time for everybody in Ayrshire over the next fortnight.
