Aberdeen are represented in the latest Scottish Professional Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week’s action.

The best eleven was selected by Craig Fowler.

The performances by Jonny Hayes and Adam Rooney in the four three victory over St Johnstone at the weekend at McDiarmid Park was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Scottish League pyramid.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why the duo was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the SPFL blurb read.

Hayes:

‘The wide man showed great energy throughout Aberdeen’s 4-3 win at St Johnstone, which moved the Dons joint-top of the Ladbrokes Premiership, behind Celtic on goal difference.’

Rooney:

‘Aberdeen’s leading scorer netted twice in the 4-3 win at McDiarmid Park. The only other forward to net twice this past weekend was Brian Graham of Ross County but he did it against non-league opponents in Linlithgow Rose, so Rooney gets the nod.’

It’s always good to see us represented in this way, and well played to both for their recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the three points.

Full Team:

Jamie MacDonald (Kilmarnock), Callum Paterson (Hearts), Paul Hanlon (Hibernian), Darren Barr (Dumbarton), Carl Tremarco (Inverness CT), Stefan McCluskey (Morton), Marvin Bartley (Hibernian), Andy Greggan (Dunfermline), Jonny Hayes (Aberdeen), Darren Smith (Sterling), Adam Rooney (Aberdeen).
